Synopsis

'A collection of intimate and heartfelt confessions of what love means, each with a wonderfully expressive colour portrait' Guardian

'Will restore your faith in the world' New York Post

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.

'This is one of the best things I have read for a very long time. These wonderful stories really bring out what is important in life' A Guardian reader response

'Beautiful. Made me cry a little. Thank you for such honest, diverse and open stories' A Guardian reader response
