|Plot Summary of True Love|
|"In his books, his newspaper column, and at coffee shops in the Seattle area, storyteller and sage Robert Fulghum asked people tell him love stories -- short, true love stories. "I was expecting gooey-sweet greeting-card sentiments but got salty surprises," he writes, "nasty love and crazy love as well." There's pain and disappointment and delicate near-misses here, a soul-lifting glance from a stranger never seen again, as well as incredible tales that will make you laugh and bring a tear to the eye. There's the college boy who sought out the previous owner of the used, marked-up D.H. Lawrence books; the guy who thanks the woman who stood him up on a New Year's Eve date in 1947 so that later that night he met the woman he would marry, and many other stories. This is a wonderful, magical little book."
David Loftus, Resident Scholar
