Love Without Wings: Some Friendships in Literature and Politics by Louis Auchincloss

A charming book of belles lettres from a shrewd and witty stylist. This delightful series of short essays explores friendship in its various forms -- from true intimacy to professional detente between rivals. The friendships, literary and political, span 2 continents and 3 centuries -- Boswell and Johnson, Fitzgerald and Hemingway, Richelieu and Father Joseph, FDR and Harry Hopkins, Edith Wharton and Margaret Chaler -- 16 sketches in all. Auchincloss approaches his subjects with grace, tact, and insight, subtly defining the peculiar, gentle chemistry on which platonic bonds depend. The result is a surprising array of social patterns and human destinies.
