Life Stages - First Love Print Email

Three jacket covers from the first love booklist featured in this articleThe romance of first love - who doesn't remember their first kiss, or the heartbreak of rejection and loss?  This new First Love booklist features fiction by contemporary writers whose stories tell of the joy, pain and disappointment of first love.  Divided by decade or era, the stories in each are influenced and shaped by the events of the time.  Many of the stories focus on the challenges of romance across the lines of culture or class.  Of first love, Daphne du Maurier writes in Rebecca, “I am glad it cannot happen twice, the fever of first love. For it is a fever, and a burden, too, whatever the poets may say.”
