Amour

How the French Talk about Love




A beautiful book of stories about love, based on interviews conducted by the author on her travels around France, accompanied by photographs.

The journalist and documentary maker Stefania Rousselle had been covering the horrors of modern news (terrorist attacks, the rise of the extreme right wing in Europe...) and was feeling dejected. To restore her faith in humanity she decided to set out to see if love still really exists, and what it means to people, travelling from village to village, or as she calls it, from 'heart to heart'.

From a baker in Normandy to a shepherd in the Pyrénées, from a gay couple estranged from their families to a widow who found love again at 70, Amour is a treasure trove of stories that you can pick from at random and feel a powerful jolt of recognition.
