The inspiration for the upcoming streaming series starring Tina Fey, Anne Hathaway, and Dev Patel, a revised and updated collection of dozens of the most memorable stories ever featured in the New York Times’ “Modern Love” column, including the eight stories adapted for television.

A young woman goes the five stages of ghosting grief. A man’s promising fourth date ends in the emergency room. A lawyer with bipolar disorder experiences the highs and lows of dating. A widower hesitates about introducing his children to his new girlfriend. A divorcee in her seventies looks back at the beauty and rubble of past relationships.

These are just a few of the people who tell their stories in Modern Love, Revised and Updated, an unforgettable collection featuring dozens of the most memorable essays to run in the New York Times “Modern Love” column.

Some of the stories are unconventional, while others hit close to home. Some reveal the way technology has changed dating forever; others explore the timeless struggles experienced by anyone who has ever searched for love. All are, above everything else, honest. Together, they tell the larger story of how relationships begin, often fail, and—when we’re lucky—endure.

Edited by longtime “Modern Love” editor Daniel Jones and featuring a diverse selection of contributors, including Mindy Hung, Trey Ellis, Ann Hood, Deborah Copaken, Terri Cheney, and more, this is the perfect book for anyone who’s loved, lost, stalked an ex on social media, or pined for true romance: In other words, anyone interested in the endlessly complicated workings of the human heart.

NEW REVISED AND UPDATED EDITION (NEW ISBN, NEW COVER [using Brian Rea’s recognizable NYT “Modern Love” illustrations], NEW MATERIAL) PUBLISHED SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH TV TIE-IN EDITION (NEW ISBN, SAME CONTENT, BUT FEATURING OFFICIAL COVER ART FROM THE TV SERIES)

TIE-IN WITH “MODERN LOVE” PRIME TV SERIES FEATURING A HIGH-PROFILE CAST: This exciting new anthology series, releasing on Amazon Video in October 2019, will also star John Slattery, Catherine Keener, Andy Garcia, and more. All of the eight stories adapted in the television series will appear in this collection, providing the perfect tie-in for fans.

ALL-NEW, DIVERSE STORIES: Half of these 42 stories have never been published in this collection before, offering the perfect blend of fan favorites, new classics, and diverse voices and experiences from across the racial, LGBTQIA+, disability, impairment, and difference spectra.

ENDURING BRAND AND SUPPORT FROM THE NYT: Between the column and its popular podcast, “Modern Love” remains as fresh, vital, and culturally relevant as it was during the first book’s publication in 2007—perhaps more so. The NYT will promote the revised edition through its channels.
