Love stories

Marianne Apostolides crafts a genre-bending novel about the philosophical nature of one of our most perilous emotional states

Marianne Apostolides

IN THE PANTHEON of human interactions, there are few questions as fraught with peril and treachery as “Do you love me?” Not simply because of the emotional weight this question – and the various possible responses to it – carries, but because the language inherent in it is so slippery and open to interpretation.

The nature of love is nuanced and multifarious, running the gamut from eros to agapé to philia and beyond; it can be deployed in so many different contexts with so many different implications and referents that it almost embodies what the French deconstructionist Jacques Derrida referred to as language’s infinite play of signification.
