The pros and cons of romantic love, explored in witty words and pictures In her long-awaited third book, Laura Stoddart turns her attention to the theme of romantic love. Her book of brief quotations, with her own distinctive illustrations, includes sections on the pursuit of love, love and marriage, and the love affair, as well as reflections on the nature of love. Wodehouse chumps chase unsuitable girls, Dorothy Parker makes acidic comments about men, Byron complains that there's nothing to write about in a happy marriage, and scores of other writers from ancient Greece to the present day supply nuggets of wisdom and humour, and delight in the strange antics of humans in the grip of love. For every sweet sentiment Laura Stoddart has found a robust antidote, and in deliciously delicate drawings she casts a sharp eye on the follies of love. The many fans of this remarkable artist will be entranced again by her tiny, exquisite pictures and by the originality of her vision.
