Salon readers: Tell us your love woesAuthors Jack Murnighan and Maura Kelly.

Love woes are timeless — so why not look to literature’s most lasting works for advice on how to deal with them?

In their new book, “Much Ado About Loving,” authors Maura Kelly and Jack Murnighan do just that. Next week, in honor of Valentine’s Day, we’re bringing their expertise — and the innumerable literary examples at their fingertips — to you.

Tell us about your romantic problems, and we’ll send Jack and Maura to the stacks. Heartbroken after a nasty breakup? Languishing in a long-term relationship that’s lost its spark? They’ll tackle anything — from good old-fashioned forbidden love to ultra-modern online dating disasters — and let you know which Great Works offer words of wisdom suitable to your situation.

Email your entries to, and check back on Valentine’s Day to see which classics they prescribe. Submissions will be accepted until 5 p.m. EST on Friday, Feb. 10.
