Author Meghan Laslocky thought she had it bad when it came to love: she's been dumped 12 times. But then she discovered that Ernest Hemingway stole his wife's job when their marriage was collapsing. And that Lord Byron sent a breakup letter to his girlfriend, and had his new lover sign it. Laslocky joins us to talk about her new work "The Little Book of Heartbreak," and the history of lost love in movies, art and literature. What was your worst breakup? And how did you cope?

Host: Scott Shafer


  • Meghan Laslocky, journalist and author of "The Little Book of Heartbreak"
