Living, Loving, Longing, Lisbon

Can you love a city?

Yes, and Lisbon is a great example. This European capital city is a bustling metropolis that averages 300 days of sunshine a year. Tourists flock here in ever-increasing numbers for the history, culture, great food, and people that have inspired this short anthology of Lisbon stories. The authors in this book come from all corners of the world. Some live here, while others have visited and fallen in love. Each of their tales shines a new and unique light on the city. Take a ride in an iconic tram with a broken-hearted tourist; find love in unexpected places; comb through the fragments in its nooks and crannies; go on a journey of healing that begins with loss; discover the city’s quirks through the eyes of an observant writer; despair of its new architecture; take a surrealist flight of fantasy; step back in time for a glamorous cruise; and meet the eclectic residents of this ancient city with a modern heart.
