9780062048318 â€œAbsolutely marvelous...lively and learned....Marilyn Yalomâ€™s book is a distinguished contribution to our experience of a great literature, as well as an endearing memoir.â€ â€”Diane Johnson, author of Lulu in Marrakech and Le Divorce â€œ[An] enchanting tour of French literatureâ€”from Abelard and Heloise in the 12th century to Marguerite Duras in the 20th and Philippe Sollers in the 21st.â€ â€”Publishers Weekly (starred review) How the French Invented Love is an entertaining and masterful history of love Ã la franÃ§aise by acclaimed scholar Marilyn Yalom. Spanning the Middle Ages to the present, Yalom explores a love-obsessed culture through its great works of literatureâ€”from Moliereâ€™s comic love to the tragic love of Racine, from the existential love of Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre to the romanticism of George Sand and Alfred de Musset. A thoroughly engaging homage to French culture and literature interlaced with the authorâ€™s delicious personal anecdotes, How the French Invented Love is ideal for fans of Alain de Botton, Adam Gopnik, and Simon Schama.
