The Love Affair As a Work of Art by Dan Hofstadter

Anyone whos dated a writer and suspected that one day he or she might end up as a character in a novel (not necessarily well portrayed) and has saved letters for the eventual court proceedings will appreciate this historical treatise on writers, love affairs, and the diminishing art of letter writing. Hofstadter brings his New Yorker panache to the investigation of resurrected diaries, memoirs, and letters written by George Sand, Anatole France, and Marcel Proust, chronicling their love affairs as they appear in both life and art. The essay features an intelligent sensitivity to French literature and to the period which endowed deep feeling with its own language and ethics. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
