Modern Love, Revised and Updated

Modern Love, Revised and Updated

Daniel Jones







The most popular, provocative, and unforgettable essays from the past fifteen years of the New York Times “Modern Love” column—including stories from the upcoming anthology series starring Tina Fey, Andy Garcia, Anne Hathaway, Catherine Keener, Dev Patel, and John Slattery

A young woman goes through the five stages of ghosting grief. A man’s promising fourth date ends in the emergency room. A female lawyer with bipolar disorder experiences the highs and lows of dating. A widower hesitates about introducing his children to his new girlfriend. A divorcée in her seventies looks back at the beauty and rubble of past relationships.

These are just a few of the people who tell their stories in Modern Love, Revised and Updated, featuring dozens of the most memorable essays to run in The New York Times “Modern Love” column since its debut in 2004.

Some of the stories are unconventional, while others hit close to home. Some reveal the way technology has changed dating forever; others explore the timeless struggles experienced by anyone who has ever searched for love. But all of the stories are, above everything else, honest. Together, they tell the larger story of how relationships begin, often fail, and—when we’re lucky—endure.

Edited by longtime “Modern Love” editor Daniel Jones and featuring a diverse selection of contributors—including Mindy Hung, Trey Ellis, Ann Hood, Deborah Copaken, Terri Cheney, and more—this is the perfect book for anyone who’s loved, lost, stalked an ex on social media, or pined for true romance: In other words, anyone interested in the endlessly complicated workings of the human heart.

Daniel Jones has edited the Modern Love column in The New York Times since its launch in 2004. His books include "Love Illuminated: Exploring Life's Most Mystifying Subject with the Help of 50,000 Strangers," "The Bastard on the Couch: 27 Men Try Really Hard to Explore Their Feelings About Love, Loss, Freedom, and Fatherhood," and a novel, "After Lucy," which was a finalist for...

34/尽量每天读一篇 觉得小故事读起来挺轻松的 我好喜欢看!估计我要读很久了ps觉得电视剧拍的太好了 真的是按照文章拍的 喜欢! //终于读完了 Love loss and redemption
3.5 stars! An interesting collecton of essays about modern love. I love that other than romantic love, it explored various facets of love. However, some stories are really bland and somewhat boring - not sure how they made the cut.
故事都是作家写的, 文笔都很美,平淡无奇的故事也能写到感情溢出来。剧确实选了故事最精彩的几篇,但是领养和离婚咨询那两集的改编很蛇足,bipolar一集几乎是完全遵照原文,Hinge创始人的真实故事比改编的更真实动人,看完忍不住去全面八卦了一番,两个人现在还在一起,个人最喜欢的急诊室那一集两个人在半年后还是分手了,what a pity. 全书最大的takeaway是爱情是没有定论,有的人爱得死去活来,把世上最深刻曼妙的词找来也无法形容我对你的爱,但是几个月之后就能遇到相守一生的the new one。有的人几十年不见,旧爱仍存。现代爱情 与古典爱情的核心是一样的,那就是去爱吧,不同的是,形式更多了,变体更多了,选择更多了,但是,还是要去爱啊。
文字比剧集更有感染力 好几篇让人泪目
