Natural History of Love


The bestselling author of A Natural History of the Senses now explores the allure of adultery, the appeal of aphrodisiacs, and the cult of the kiss. Enchantingly written and stunningly informed, this “audaciously brilliant romp through the world of romantic love” (Washington Post Book World) is the next best thing to love itself.

Written by Diane Ackerman

Customer Review (Amazon)

This amazingly poetic writer touches on every aspect of love, from historical, through anthropological to erotic, then on to familial, religious, cultural. She hits every note of love with the velvet hammer of the most excellent and poetic prose. This book is not only an intellectual pleasure, but also a sensual indulgence. This is how I would write every time, if only I could. This is how I would read every time, if only every writer could.

Any person who has ever loved (anything!) should go here to find out what ties have bound them, and then, what experiences have unbound them. Now, I am off to read another of her books!
