True Love Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews 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.
