Sucker for Love: True Tales About Loves Found, Lost, and Imagined. The anthology is assembled from stories originally told live on stage for Story District’s annual production of Sucker for Love, now in its sixth year. As with everything Story District does, all of the stories are true, autobiographical, and were originally performed without the use of notes.
Contributors: Jeffrey Brady, Twain Dooley, Chris Love, Nevin Martell, Meredith Maslich, Vijai Nathan, Jessica Piscitelli Robinson, Anne Thomas, and John Tong, with a special forward by Sucker for Love creator Stephanie Garibaldi.
Cover design by the brilliant Dave Peterson, of BrandDave.
…Anne Thomas’ hilarious and touching tale about handling the unbridled love of a much younger man.
…What happens when Nevin Martell’s love life starts to resemble a romantic comedy…in a good way.
…The wild, awful, and unexpected places that online dating takes naive-but-lovable comedian Vijai Nathan.
…Chris Love’s heartbreaking-yet-comical tale of trying to “pack away the gay” and make sense of the crush he has on his best friend.
…Jessica Piscitelli Robinson’s wry and unflinching look into the perilous world of dating after 30, especially when bellies tick, but hearts that don’t always pound.
