Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2020.276 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: Each of the locations described mirrors some aspect of love affairs. The first one seems to represent people whom we once loved but with whom we’ve lost touch. The second is people who focus tightly on the sensual aspect of love—at least for a while. The third is, as it says, about heartbreak, the fourth is about infatuation, and the last is about real love, that “bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.”

Con: There are no characters and no plot.
