Love Stories by Trent Dalton (Signed Copy)


Trent Dalton was born in Ipswich, Queensland in 1979. He is the youngest of four boys, and had a challenging childhood as his mother and stepfather both spent time in jail for selling heroin. Trent then spent the rest of his childhood in a housing commission property with his father on the outskirts of Brisbane.

Dalton started his career in journalism, studying at the University of Southern Queensland and the Queensland University of Technology. In 2000, he started work as a writer for Brisbane News, then spent time working at The Courier-Mail as a journalist.

His first novel, Boy Swallows Universe is semi-autobiographical, and put him on the international map as a hugely talented Australian author.

Trent is also a two-time winner of a Walkley Award for Excellence in Journalism, a four-time winner of a Kennedy Award for Excellence in NSW Journalism and a four-time winner of the national News Awards Features Journalist of the Year.

Trent Dalton, Australia’s best-loved writer, goes out into the world and asks a simple, direct question: ‘Can you please tell me a love story?’

A blind man yearns to see the face of his wife of thirty years. A divorced mother has a secret love affair with a priest. A geologist discovers a three-minute video recorded by his wife before she died. A tree lopper’s heart falls in a forest. A working mum contemplates taking photographs of her late husband down from her fridge. A girl writes a last letter to the man she loves most, then sets it on fire. A palliative care nurse helps a dying woman converse with the angel at the end of her bed. A renowned 100-year-old scientist ponders the one great earthly puzzle he was never able to solve: ‘What is love?’

Endless stories. Human stories. Love stories.

Inspired by a personal moment of profound love and generosity, Trent Dalton, bestselling author and one of Australia’s finest journalists, spent two months in 2021 speaking to people from all walks of life, asking them one simple and direct question: ‘Can you please tell me a love story?’ The result is an immensely warm, poignant, funny, and moving book about love in all its guises, including observations, reflections and stories of people falling into love, falling out of love, and never letting go of the loved ones in their hearts. A heartfelt, deep, wise and tingly tribute to the greatest thing we will never understand and the only thing we will ever really need: love.
