'Startlingly original stories.'
'Together they assert that love is more heart-breaking and transforming that the word necessarily conveys.'
Love is not a singular concept.
In this collection, seven award-winning authors explore seven concepts of love: from Philautia, self-love, to Agape, love for humanity; and from Storge, a natural affection for family, to Mania, a frenzied, obsessive love.
Seven authors; seven short stories; seven flashes of love.
'Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the heart can hold.'
This paperback edition of How Much the Heart Can Hold includes the winning short story from the SceptreLoves short story Prize.
