From the Contributor: It seems we’ve been short on love in recent years, with divisiveness and resentment running rampant, driving wedges between communities, families, our lovers. It even distorts how we think about love, until it can seem like we don’t even know what love *is *any longer. If you don’t understand something, it’s easy to neglect it and, ultimately, abandon it altogether. Bell hooks is one of the leading feminist writers to emerge in recent years. She offers a truly inclusive, loving gaze that seems to find the best in everybody, embracing commonality and finding real empathy and connection.
