A Vindication of Love: Reclaiming Romance for the Twenty-First Century by Cristina Nehring
A Vindication of Love: Reclaiming Romance for the Twenty-First Century

Lou Cucic , February 10, 2011

Passion is not dead but starving. Even today, seventeen years later.

Christina would certainly remember the shuttle flight from NYC to Washington back in December 1994 when a certain Croat spilled the Coke and whiskey over both engines and knocked down the romance instantly. Years elapsed and now he sees how fatal was his mistake. Missing a chance of his life he became a poor civil servant for the corrupt government, seeing occasionally his wives waving the white flag and leaving. Christina ended up there where she always belonged - in the amphitheater of love, in the stratosphere of instant passion. Had I followed her dynamics back in 20th century, her book would have been even better, my destiny far more joyful and the world much more better place to live.

Thanks Christina anyway. It was fun knowing you. I couldn't share your passion, persistence of your letters. But I certainly share your thoughts.

Ever yours,

Ljubomir Cucic, Zagreb, Croatia
