Excellent debut. The author is clearly drunk on the power of words. I really enjoyed the variety of style of short story in the book. They are all clearly of the same author but they all felt wonderfully different (though, as you can tell from the title, they all involve various types of love). One story was basically a standard drama, a slightly oddly written one but one nonetheless. Others were narrated by Elephants, tigers, had insane footnotes, took place on an insect planet in the future or involved some Borgesian playing with narrative. Very funny and sad.
