Is love eternal? Is it dangerous to love? 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 to Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine, this is a fascinating book that describes the inferno and paradise of love, and illustrates an astonishing historical mosaic of adventurous existence.
