Beloved Australian author Trent Dalton brings us a new, heart-warming collection of true stories about love, told by everyday people from all walks of life. You can pre-order your copy of Love Stories now, out 27th October in a beautiful hardcover. 

Sentimental writer collecting love stories. Do you have one to share?

So said the sign in front of bestselling author and award-winning journalist Trent Dalton’s desk as he sat, for two weeks straight, on a busy Brisbane street corner. Inspired by a personal moment of profound love and generosity, Trent spent two months in 2021 pounding city pavements, speaking to Australians from all walks of life and asking them one simple and direct question: “Can you please tell me a love story?”

The result? A poignant, funny and moving collection of love stories that we couldn’t be more excited to get our hands on. And it’s called, well, Love Stories.


Readers fell in love with Trent’s debut novel, Boy Swallows Universe, and now he’s brought his journalistic flair, insight and characteristic warmth and humour to a very special work of non-fiction about the greatest thing we will never understand and the only thing we ever really need – love.

A blind man yearns to see the face of his wife of thirty years. A divorced mother has a secret love affair with a travelling priest. A girl writes her last letter to the man she loves, then sets it on fire.

You’ll find all these stories and more in Love Stories, woven through with remembrances of Trent's own special moments, and of the people whose love stories have made him the man and writer he is today.

“This book is an unashamed, heart-on-the-sleeve, soul-on-the-collar response to the times we are living in,” Trent Dalton said. “You would not believe the things people will tell you when you take the time to shut the hell up and listen. The wisdoms, the lessons, the secrets, the stories.”

Still haven’t read Trent’s latest fiction? We have All Our Shimmering Skies for just $14.99!
