Synopses & Reviews
Is love eternal? Does the perfect passion exist? Is it dangerous to love? This novel doesn't answer such profound questions as these but it does reflect topics of great concern. With these eighteen essays, Rosa Montero brings us closer to intense relationships, though not all have happy endings. From Marc Anthony and Cleopatra to John Lennon and Yoko Ono, from Oscar Wilde and Lord Alfred Douglas, this is a fascinating book that describes the inferno and paradise of love, and illustrates an astonishing historical mosaic of adventurous existence.
