The Reddest Rose Unfolds By Liv Stromquist
Why does Leonardo di Caprio date an endless string of 20-something models without ever committing to one partner?
Liv Stromquist answers, in a well-researched humorous comic essay, how philosphers and artists, from the ancient Greeks to Beyonce, conceptualize romantic love.
Stromquist's signature characters offer sharp commentary as they guide readers throught history, showing the changes in societies' values: from showing love/loving to getting love/being loved. The Reddest Rose wonders--in our a ratioalist, consumerist world--can romantic love survive?
