Daring, delightful, sexy, cool, sweet, and poignant--Anna David's compilation True Tales of Lust and Love explores the dark, moist corners of the female psyche, armed with pens, tears, and humor. I savored every word. --Gigi Levangie Grazer

"While there is no shortage of books about the pleasures and perils of dating in the 21st century, David's all-female collection stands out from the crowd...Humor and awkwardness feature throughout, but there is enough sweetness, especially in the latter two sections, sprinkled in to inspire even the most jaded to take a second look at their list of potential mates..None of the stories here fall flat; it's a hysterical and touching read perfect for young women still figuring out their way in the dating world." --Publishers Weekly

[G]reat for reading out loud--Cosmo

Praise for the True Tales of Lust and Love Series:

"These broads give good prose jobs" --L.A Weekly

"A night of love lives gone wrong--flame-out dates, awkward encounters and broken hearts--for culture lovers" --Los Angeles Times

"After so many solo book readings over the years, writer Anna David (Falling for Me, Party Girl) got a little lonely and decided to add funny, smart and sexy (really--they're all babes!) women telling stories about sex and love to her lineup. Enter: True Tales of Lust and Love. This is the place to go to see strong female performers. Case in point, big-name comedian Maria Bamford has woven tales here in the past." --Time Out Los Angeles

"The Mint celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, making it a true landmark (especially by LA standards), but the loyal fans of the live-music scene and local-hangout vibe already know that. Known for raucous, dance-inducing rock and funk music, plus the occasional alt-country and punk show -- as well as a great menu and cozy leather booths -- this spot is always a sure bet for a good time. Case in point: TV personality and author of books like Falling for Me, writer Anna David gathers a group of smart and sexy ladies to read their own romantic stories at the Mint's latest and most buzzworthy monthly live-storytelling show, True Tales of Lust and Love." --Flavorpill

"Val-Day lurks around the corner so what better way to compliment -- or counteract -- the ubiquitous hearts and flowers than with True Tales of Lust and Love from Writers and Comedians: author/TV personality Anna David's convocation of witty, wildly accomplished writer gals who know how to bitch slap a Hallmark card right out of existence." --Eat LA
