Overview

In his third book, Uh-Oh, Robert Fulghum shared some short and somewhat unconventional love stories from his own tales to tell, he would love to hear them. To his surprise, his mailbox was soon stuffed with thousands of real-life love stories sent to him by his devoted fans. He used his nationally syndicated newspaper column to solicit additional material and he also sat in a coffee shop in Seattle with a sigh that said, "Tell me a Short Love Story and I Will Buy You Coffee and Make You Famous." True Love is the result of the incredible response he received. These stories, specially chosen by Fulghum to reflect the many faces on love, are amusing, sentimental, sometimes unflinchingly honest — and bound to touch the hearts of all.

There's the story of a woman who marries her mother's high school flame, a man who learns that "Old Love" and new pajamas are a dangerous mix, a man who miraculously reunites with his first love (after 20 years of separation) on an L.A. freeway, a husband's love for his wife after her disabling stroke, a fourteen-year-old's philosophy of looking for love on the boardwalk, and a smile shared at a spotlight.

Okay, first, I have to say that there are A FEW... VERY FEW... stories in this book that are worth reading. Having said that... This book is the most amazing collection of stories of people who have the saddest, most empty lives you can imagine. Except for the few actual love stories, there are 2 kinds, which I call "almost" and "if only." This is the basic "almost" love story: "I saw the most beautiful stranger approaching as I walked down the street. I looked at him. He looked at me. We smiled at each other and kept walking, never to see each other again." Wow! True LOVE!!! And this is the ESSENCE of this book! And here is the basic "if only" story: "If only I'd had the nerve to..." But that's not the worst part! No, the worst part is that most of these people's lives are so empty that their stories end with them reminiscing DECADES LATER about this great romantic adventure, the "true love" that got away. When asked to come up with a love story, this is the best they have. This is the highlight of their lives, and NOTHING actually HAPPENED!!! And I have to ask, "Robert Fulghum, why in the world did you print this?"

Before getting married this May 20th, I read 'True Love'. It inspired me to write my true love story and in fact had sent it to the address that was given at the end of 'True Love' for the next book 'True Love-Book II'. Unfortunately it came back stamped 'Addressee Moved, No forwarding address'. Can anyone help me find out if there is a Book II, and if so will there be submissions for it? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
