A revised and updated collection of many of the most memorable stories ever featured in the New York Times’ “Modern Love” column, featuring stories from the upcoming Amazon Original series set to air October 18th and 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 whose stories are included in MODERN LOVE (Broadway Books, on-sale September 3, 2019), a collection of many of the most memorable essays from the famed New York Times column. 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. All of the stories are, above everything else, honest.

Edited by longtime “Modern Love” editor Daniel Jones, the collection features such contributors as Larry Smith, Ayelet Waldman, Amy Krouse Rosenthal, Andrew Rannells, Ann Leary, and Veronica Chambers. This revised and updated edition includes twenty new stories that have never been published in a collection before, as well as the pieces that have been adapted for the forthcoming Amazon Original anthology series set to air October 18th, and starring Tina Fey, Andy Garcia, Anne Hathaway, Catherine Keener, Dev Patel and John Slattery. Together, they are the perfect blend of old standbys and new classics that tell the larger story of how relationships begin, often fail, and—when we’re lucky—endure.

As the “Modern Love” column approaches its 15-year anniversary in October, it remains as fresh, vital, and culturally relevant as ever. MODERN LOVE is the perfect book for fans both old and new, for lovers and loners alike, and anyone interested in the endlessly complicated workings of the heart.
