All There Is: Love Stories from StoryCorps (Paperback)
A celebration of love from StoryCorps
In "All There Is, " StoryCorps founder David Isay shares stories from the revolutionary oral history project, revealing the many remarkable journeys that relationships can take.
In these pages we discover that love is found in unexpected places: a New York tollbooth, a military base in Iraq, an airport lounge. We encounter love that survives discrimination, illness, poverty, distance even death. Carrying us from the excitement and anticipation of courtship to the deep connection of lifelong commitment, "All There Is" enriches our understanding of love and of the resilience of the human spirit.
Dave Isay's newest book, "Callings," will be published by Penguin Press on April 19, 2016.
