This series of entwined biographical sketches recounts how, in the Romantic Era, love affairs, often illicit, were transformed into novels, memoirs, and published correspondences. We make the intimate acquaintance of great writers like Mme de Staël, Chateaubriand, George Sand, and Anatole France, who, however, fall gradually under the suspicion of pursuing their amorous entanglements for “good material.” The tale ends with a moving account, based on unpublished sources, of the strange, intense friendship of Marcel Proust and Jeanne Pouquet, the girl who became the model for Gilberte in Swann’s Way. Disenchanted yet compassionate, this book explores how our affections may be exalted (and at times betrayed) by our desire to refashion them as stories.

The 19th Century Love Affair of Joseph Smith and Emma Hale was born out of the author\'s study of LDS polygamy, polyandry, and child marriage within the early days of the LDS Church. The author\'s grandfather was a polygamist and could, first-hand, see the strain on the last wife of her grandfather. Grandma Cleo worked and cooked for 45 children, during family gatherings. I never saw her tire, but I was always sorry for her. I tried to stay out of the way and not get into trouble, so I minded my business, as was the discipline at that time. My father did not want anything to do with polygamy, so our immediate family was spared the pain of that God-forsaken lifestyle.’

As if the age-old conflict between Heart and Brain wasn't difficult enough. Has this modern day changed Love's very chemistry? Equality of the sexes, Social Engineering- you know that Metro-sexual stuff, and the development of our "criteria box"... have really made affairs of the Heart more difficult for Brain to control. Anatomy of a Love Affair is a tale of Love where everything happens in an opposite way..... .......and m i keaton tells the tale in a totally new and different way!! In this story, Sarah, a helpless romantic, has grown cynical and is now on a mission to find the "Perfect Man"....you know, the one with all of her "criteria box" requirements. Mike's Heart has convinced Brain that "Love" is the most important aspect of his "criteria box". His "Hugh Hefner" wannabe persona is quickly forgotten as he finds the love of his life and Sarah's cynicism is temporarily overwhelmed by Mike's doting and sincere view of love. Perchance we could hear the banter between, no not Mike and Sarah, rather that of their Heart and Brain....to hear their feelings and thoughts at that very moment This might give us pause and make less calamity of such affairs. Perhaps offer thoughts to ponder if not answers... Love is chemistry .... Let us listen in.....

The story of Tom Inglis Moore, controversial crusader for Australian writers. The book traces Moore's life and influence from the farming country of Camden south of Sydney, thence to England and the United States and, via the Philippines and New Guinea, to Canberra. 'More than a litany of Moore's achievements and by no means a hagiography...includes a balanced assessment of Moore's own creative and critical writing.' - Canberra Times. 'Written in an engaging manner that wears its research lightly...a lively, affectionate, yet clear-eyed celebration of its subject's life...' - Australian Book Review. 'This humane and revealing work makes the reader feel literature in a direct way.' - Reviews in Australian Studies

The Italian love affair with sport is passionate, voracious, and all-consuming. It provides a backdrop and a narrative to almost every aspect of daily life in Italy and the distinctively pink-colored newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport is devoured by more than three million hungry readers every day. Narrating the history of modern Italy through its national passion for sport, Sport Italia provides a completely new portrayal of one of Europe’s most alluring, yet contradictory countries, tracing the highs and lows of Italy’s sporting history from its Liberal pioneers through Mussolini, the 1960 Rome Olympics to the Berlusconi era. By interweaving essential themes of Italian history, its politics, society, and economy with a history of the passion for sport in the country, Simon Martin tells the story of modern Italy in a fresh, new, and interesting way, illustrating how and why sport is so strongly embedded in both politics and society, and how it is inseparable from the concept of Italian national identity. Showing sport’s capacity to both unite and deeply divide, this book reveals a novel and previously unexplored element of the history of a society and its state, which will be an essential read for sports fans, historians, and students alike.
