Tikva Wolf has witnessed love transcend and evolve beyond the rigid, traditionalist trappings of the fairy-tale romance. Love, Retold is a meditation on love and companionship for people who don't remember feudalism. Each chapter explores Wolf's experiences with loved ones—Wolf's lovers and their lovers. The stories capture key moments in these relationships, and they reflect on the murkier, tenebrous aspects of love, especially—but not exclusively—the non-monogamous kind. These stories illuminate and revere uncertainty, confronting the realities of mismatched needs and desires with compassion and self-reflection. In a world obsessed with beginnings and endings, this is a book about middles.
About the Author
Tikva Wolf has been drawing ever since they could hold a crayon, and comes from a long line of love-activists. What they primarily care about in art (and life) is connecting to people, creating dialogue, and spreading awareness. They've always taken delight in making people laugh, and in doing so also unveiling hidden perspectives. They use humor as a way of encouraging others to deeply see themselves and each other.

"This debut graphic novel by writer/artist Wolf explores love and its evolution when traditional definitions are removed and individuals are allowed to experience the emotion organically and personally, in their own unique way." —Cassidy Charles, Library Journal
