"The word "love" is most often defined as a noun, yet...we would all love to better if we used it as a verb," writes bell hooks as she comes out fighting and on fire in All About Love

Here, at her most provacative and intensely personel, the renowned scholar, cultural critic, and feminist skewers our view of love as romance

In its place she offers a proactive new ethic for a people and a society bereft with lovelessness

As bell hooks uses her incisive mind and razor-sharp pen to explode th question "What is love?" her answers strike at both the mind and heart
