The Southbank Centre's Festival of Love, London

I wrote an essay, slightly more personal and slightly less academic than usual, about the Southbank Centre's Festival of Love, and my friend Melisa Trujillo drew some pictures for it. My essay looks at bodies, nostalgia, language, the Museum of Broken Relationships, friendship, dressing up like Elvis in Jessica Voorsanger's I Think I Love You Lounge, telephones and mass weddings. It's up on the King's Review website now, with lots of other interesting articles. I would also really recommend going to the Southbank Centre's Festival of Love, which runs until the end of August.
