All You Need is Love
According to the Beatles, “All You Need is Love.” Well, they might just be right. StoryCorps, which provides people time and space to record conversations with their loved ones, has logged about 40,000 interviews in the eight-plus years it has been operating. StoryCorps founder Dave Isay says in all those interviews, the theme that crops up more than any other is love.
So the StoryCorps crew decided to publish a collection of selected interviews about love in a new book called “All There Is: Love Stories from StoryCorps“. Love has many meanings, but for the purposes of this collection, they stuck with stories about romantic love — love found and love lost.
“It’s really just a book about hope,” Isay says. “Because when you read these stories together, you see that when you least expect it, love can enter your life in one way or another.”
