Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

In 11 essays, memoirist Gornick looks at the role of love in the lives and writings of Kate Chopin, Jean Rhys, Willa Cather, Hannah Arendt, Martin Heidegger, Christina Stead, Grace Paley, and other figures of the modern era. In the title essay, she asserts that the use of love as metaphor in the novel is over, and that in present-day novels, love or romance signifies nostalgia rather than personal discovery. No index.
