Tales of pain and heartbreak

Read by Jim Norton, Eve Karpf & Vincent Marzello (Unabridged: 11hrs 3mins)

Featuring stories by Joseph Conrad, Ovid, Tagore, James Joyce, Katherine Mansfield & more.

Love.  Perhaps the one word solution for everything.  An emotion, a state of mind that we strive for, search for.  A wondrous force that binds, inspires, and a force that can spin out of control; unbalanced and fragile.  Love reflects, changes and embraces us all.  

In this series we explore the many facets of love through literary talents that span both time and country.  When love’s flaws begin to stretch and amplify then heartbreak must surely follow.  Love requires not just yearning and devotion but commitment and protection of an ideal.  When that crumbles love finds pain, being in love becomes more difficult.  And what our literary greats share with us in this difficult volume brings that truth home.
