The second thematic compilation edited by Thomas Lowe Taylor, focusing on a topic that is difficult to write about well or innovatively. The 60+ contributors to this volume, however, show that is indeed possible to write about love in unique, personal, and entirely new ways, which shows that love can be approached not as an exercise in recombinant clichés, but as a dynamic part of the writer's life experience and processes of consciousness. The collection is primarily poetry, with some visuals and prose works, and provides a wide variety of reich and thought-provoking reading. The contributors' list reads like a who's who of innovative writers, but includes as well several names new to this reviewer.--John M. Bennett
