Overview

'Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the heart can hold.'
Zelda Fitzgerald

Love is not a singular concept.

In this collection, seven award-winning authors explore seven concepts of love: from Philautia, self-love, to Agape, love for humanity; and from Storge, a natural affection for family, to Mania, a frenzied, obsessive love.

Seven authors; seven short stories; seven flashes of love.

This paperback edition of How Much the Heart Can Hold includes the winning short story from the SceptreLoves short story Prize.
