    An Anthology of Love Stories, and not "Jane Austen" love stories, but love in the very realistic sense that love is mostly wonderous but can also be heart-wrenchingly painful, confusing and totally disorienting. It's mesmorizing and also great because you can read a whole story in a short sitting and leave it to the next time you're in the mood for the next. Also, Eugenidies is donating ALL the proceeds to his pet project, 826 Chicago, a group that helps develop creative writing skills for kids ages 8-18. Read it, love it, and pass it on!
