Abraham VergheseAs in her previous work…Ackerman weds exquisite writing with profound insights, this time into speech and imagination…I will confess I was deeply affected by One Hundred Names for Love. Ackerman and West's is an extraordinary love story, and that a devastating stroke intervened has made it only more moving. Since we are all mortal, none of us will experience love without also experiencing loss. This book has done what no other has for me in recent years: it has renewed my faith in the redemptive power of love, the need to give and get it unstintingly, to hold nothing back, settle for nothing less, because when flesh and being and even life fall away, love endures. This book is proof.
