Lovers: Great Romances of Our Time through the Eyes of Legendary Writersby Diane Ackerman, Aacon Kenedi
Lovers also includes contributions from George Burns, Dylan Thomas, Jimmy Carter, and John Gregory Dunne. Every written piece/i>
Each of these 50 profiles is an intimate pairing: Lauren Bacall on her relationship with Humphrey Bogart; A. Alvarez on the beautiful, sad days of Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath; Katharine Hepburn on her stormy life with Spencer Tracy.
Lovers also includes contributions from George Burns, Dylan Thomas, Jimmy Carter, and John Gregory Dunne. Every written piece is accompanied by a lush full-page portrait of the couple, by such noted photographers as Cecil Beaton, Neil Leifer, Alan Tannenbaum, Bert Stern, and Annie Leibovitz. Lovers is a book about the fire of true love - the undeniable longing that makes two people the desire of each other's lives. Sometimes it comes in fiery flashes like Burton and Taylor; Rivera and Frida Kahlo; sometimes in the deep, lasting bond of Newman and Woodward; and sometimes in a long, sad trajectory like Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald.
Yet these loves last forever. To put it simply, as Frank Sinatra said of Ava Gardener: "She was my life."
