A timeless, universal meditation on the meaning of love, based on the author’s travels through France, accompanied by stunning full-colour photographs.
Award-winning journalist and documentary maker Stefania Rousselle had stopped believing in love. She had covered a series of bleak assignments, from terrorist attacks to the rise of the far right. Her relationship had fallen apart. Her faith in humanity was shaken. She decided to set out alone on a road trip across France, sleeping in strangers’ homes, asking ordinary men and women the one question everyone wants to know the answer to: What is love?
From a baker in Normandy to a shepherd in the Pyrénées, from a gay couple estranged from their families to a widow who found love again at 70, Amour is a treasure trove of poignant and profound stories about love, accompanied by beautiful photographs.
‘Astonishing. Beautiful. Extraordinary. A couple of times I gasped and choked up. This was really worth reading’ A Guardian reader response.
