Inhaltsangabe: Concentrating on the heady, intense and often anguished state that is the beginning of a love affair, Sheila Sullivan analyzes the psychological processes and uses a range of literary references to discover love's characteristics.
A history of torment and enchantment
Everyone – or almost everyone – falls in love. It is such a commonplace event that the world hardly notices it happen. Sheila Sullivan explores the psychological, social, sexual and cultural processes that allow normally rational people to lose their reason. Reaching out to the happy in love as well as the broken-hearted, FALLING IN LOVE speaks to both those who scorn love and those who celebrate it. Clear-headed and wise, this is an indispensable guide around the strange territory of a love affair.
Praise for FALLING IN LOVE:
‘Sweepingly erudite, smartly reflective . . . a delightful journey, full of unexpected detours’ OBSERVER
‘Sullivan comes into her own as a true enthusiast for romantic love’ DAILY TELEGRAPH
‘A well-researched and well-meditated book, which surveys the experience of falling in love . . . and which does not blanch at exploring the problems as well as the promises involved’ FINANCIAL TIMES
