CRUSH brings together stories of heartbreak, humiliation, and hilarity from a roster of popular luminaries, including James Franco, Stephen King, Roxane Gay, Jodi Picoult, Emily Gould, and Hanna Rosin, who share intimate memories of that first intense taste of love. Here are funny, whimsical, sometimes cringe-worthy tales of falling head over heels for River Phoenix, Mary Tyler Moore, Jared Leto, and a host of other pop culture icons.

Cathy Alter is a successful freelance writer whose articles and essays have appeared in the O, the Oprah Magazine, Washington Post, Washingtonian, The, The New York Times, Huffington Post, and McSweeney’s. She is the author of Virgin Territory: Stories From the Road to Womanhood, the memoir, Up for Renewal: What Magazines Taught Me About Love, Sex, and Starting Over, and the recently released anthology, CRUSH: Writers Reflect on Love, Longing, and the Lasting Power of Their First Celebrity Crush. She lives in Washington DC with her husband Karl, their 5-year-old son Leo.
