Carvell Wallace journeys through loss and reunion in memoir ‘Another Word for Love’

In his magazine profiles and podcasts, Oakland writer Carvell Wallace has a gift for examining people and the times we live in with clarity and wisdom. With his new memoir “Another Word for Love,” Wallace extends his compassionate view to his own story, following a childhood riddled with homelessness and abuse to his search for healing, pleasure and the divine. “It is not enough to be hurt and to know that you are hurt,” he writes. “The price of life, of being in love, is that you have to heal.”
