"A beautifully woven tapestry of insightful corollaries and personal stories, offering fresh conjectures into the psyches of women and men in love." -- Elle . Think of torch songs and the tango. Think of films such as Casablanca and The English Patient , of novels such as Wuthering Heights and Rebecca . Think of romantic, obsessive love, the hot bed of passion we fall into, the emotion we call true love. This is the subject of Rosemary Sullivan's provocative and fascinating book. Beginning with her own telling of a fictional love story, she then, chapter by chapter, deconstructs it, skillfully pushing back the layers of meaning to look at what is really happening. Using literature, mythology, film, and personal anecdote; with graceful writing and an intimate knowledge of the subject, Rosemary Sullivan has written a brilliant exploration of our desire for romantic love as she attempts to answer the question, Why do women love as they do?
