Old Love Stories


Formats & editions


This classic collection explores the varieties of wisdom gained with age and especially those that teach us how to love, as "in love the young are just beginners and the art of loving matures with age and experience".

Tales of curious marriages and divorce mingle with psychic experiences and curses, acts of bravery and loneliness, love and hatred.
