“Hysterical and touching” confessions drawn from the New York Times–bestselling author’s hit storytelling stage shows and podcast (Publishers Weekly).
Anna David’s project began as a live venue for writers and comedians to share and laugh and cringe at their love-gone-wrong disaster stories. Now Anna has collected twenty-six of the most popular and entertaining pieces into the first ever True Tales of Lust and Love anthology.
Organized into three sections, Casual Sex, Dating, and Love—or Something Like It, these hilarious, raucous, insightful, and heartening essays about the desire for lust and love, includes: Alison Agosti’s unapologetic story about her sex playlist comprised entirely of 12 different covers of “Stand By Me”; Liberal Samantha Dunn on falling in love with an “up-to-his-eyeballs” Republican; Claire Titelman’s tale of her not-kinky-enough Craigslist hook-up; Laura House’s admission of her love of strippers; and Anna David’s story of her innocent quest, at only eight-years-old, for her very own Danny Zuko.
With contributions from the funniest writers and comedians around, pulled from the world of books, TV, and film. True Tales of Lust and Love is “daring, delightful, sexy, cool, sweet, and poignant. I savored every word” (Gigi Levangie Grazer, New York Times bestselling author of The Starter Wife).
