LOVE ILLUMINATED: Exploring Life’s Most Mystifying Subject

Topical Currents is with New York Times “Modern Love” columnist Daniel Jones. No subject in human history has been more thoroughly examined, yet it’s still as little understood since the time of Shakespeare.

Columnist Jones has had some 50,000 letters cross his desk:  deluged with scheming cheaters, hopeless romantics and fierce devotees. He’s written, LOVE ILLUMINATED:  Exploring Life’s Most Mystifying Subject.
