9780099581987: The Conversations: 66 Reasons to Start Talking

In the vein of Alain de Botton and Adam Phillips, a provocative and diverting book of short essays to get you thinking and talking—conversations to have with friends, partners, or just with yourself

We've all known the heady thrill of a conversation that goes on all night. Once we had opinions on everything, but as life becomes more humdrum we often lose that passion. Sometimes we can't remember what we really think at all. This thoughtful book encourages readers to think anew. Olivia Fane provides the starting points for 66 conversations to be had with a partner, friend, stranger, or simply with ourselves. These thought-provoking and stimulating short discussions on happiness, vanity, infidelity, education, and more offer the questions that will help readers get to know those with whom they share their lives. Whether they lead to agreement or vehement disagreement, these topics provide endless food for thought and a surprising window onto some of the big subjects that define who we are and how we live.
