Non-FictionConversations On Love by Natasha Lunn

Conversations On Love by Natasha Lunn


There can be a lot of fixation on a day like today because we as a society put a huge amount of pressure on ourselves — to be happy constantly, to live our best lives every moment, to have the perfect relationship and to make sure everyone sees it.

This book is about love in all its forms — lovers, strangers, parents, friends, endings, beginnings and more. It is about who we love, how we love, how we build love and how we sustain it. We don’t learn about love at school, @natashachloelunn points out in her introduction, yet we expect so much from it throughout our lives. 

And indeed, it is her own journey that Lunn takes us on. From her earliest crush aged fourteen, through to her relationship with her husband, her yearning to have a baby, her fertility struggle, her miscarriage and what happened after. It is one interwoven with Lunn’s deeply personal conversations with some of the world’s most celebrated thinkers, writers and influential figures; @estherperelofficial@arielvlevy@roxanegay74@dollyalderton@theschooloflifelondon are just some of the stars in this constellation.

A profound and philosophical exploration of love — in relationships and of the self — it is also a searingly emotive read and provoked a reaction that neither of us expected. It is, simply put, absolutely beautiful.

On a day like today, when love is at the forefront of every shop window, restaurant and advert, Conversations on Love reminds us of the value of love in every single form in which it comes. 

And with that, we wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day, however you choose to spend it!
