About Love Sucks

The perfect anti-Valentine’s gift, featuring 60 funny, cynical, and down right bitter quotes that prove that love should be avoided at all costs.

Are you tired of hearing about how “love is all you need” (no dice, the Beatles) and that “love will conquer all?” (Ugh!) Does the idea of red roses, balloons, teddy bears, love hearts, chocolates, and birds suddenly appearing make your teeth hurt with all of its sickly, saccharine, clichéd insanity? How about some real talk? It’s all a farce. Love sucks. As Oscar Wilde said, “Deceiving others. That is what the world calls a romance.”

The reality is, love is a madness that makes fools of all of us, and we’re definitely better off without it. In the words of Steve Martin, “Love is a promise delivered already broken.” Whether you’ve been burned or broken hearted, or you’re just wise to the idiocy of love that all the good folks are, know that you’re not alone. Featuring gorgeously dark and quirky illustrations by Emma Munger, Love Sucks is a collection of funny, bitter, and brutally truthful quotes about how terrible love is, from music, film, literature, and history’s great and jaded minds.
