In the Name of Love: A Study of Sexual Desire (Tauris Parke Paperbacks)by Jill Tweedie
Synopses & Reviews
All for love, and nothing for reward. Is love the rosy, many-splendored thing that poets proclaim--or is it something altogether darker and more disturbing? Jill Tweedie’s eloquent and disarming account of her own experience of love vividly illustrates how painfully and slowly she learned a truth very different from the popular myth. She explores the very nature, process, and purpose of this most powerful of human forces--and the wrongs that have been done in its name over the centuries--and concludes that perhaps love is not all we need. This is both a searing portrait of love (and the passion it inspires) and a deeply personal and affecting account of this mysterious force and its effect on one woman’s life.
A portrait of love and the passion it inspires. The author's journey through the landscape of love is an account of this most powerful of human forces and its effect on one woman's life.
