Love Stories by Diana Secker Tesdell
Book DescriptionAn anthology of literary love stories in a beautiful hardcoverPocket Classics edition perfect for Valentine s Day. Here are nineteen stories from a rich array of writers, and here is every kind of romantic entanglement: from the raw, erotic passion of D. H. Lawrence and Colette to the wickedly cynical comedy of Dorothy Parker and Roald Dahl, from the yearning of unrequited romantic illusions in F. Scott Fitzgerald s Winter Dreams to the agonizing madness of jealousy in Vladimir Nabokov s That in Aleppo Once . . . The objects of passion in these stories range from a glamorous silent-movie starlet in Elizabeth Bowen s haunting Dead Mabelle and a faithful ghost in Yasunari Kawabata's "Immortality" to a heart surgeon in Margaret Atwood s Bluebeard s Egg who spends his days penetrating the mysteries of the human heart but who seemsoddlyemotionally opaque himself. Jhumpa Lahiri plumbs the despair of a husband and wife sundered by tragedy while Lorrie Moore movingly portrays acouple brought together by it. Katherine Mansfield, Tobias Wolff, and William Trevor explore the intricacies of long-term relationships, while Guy de Maupassant, Italo Calvino, and T. C. Boyle portray theelemental force of love in extremely different ways. Asalluring, moving, and intoxicating as its timeless theme, this collection makes an enticing gift for lovers at any stage of life."
