Thursday, Feb 7, 2013 6:00p

In her latest book,author Marilyn Yalom reveals not only how the French invented love but also how they kept it vibrant from the Middles Ages to the present day. From the rituals of courtly love in the twelfth century, to the cinema of Rohmer, Godard, and Truffaut in the twentieth. Marilyn Yalom distills her readings of French literary works, memoirs of famous and infamous couples, and the memories of her own experiences in France to illuminate the central tenets of France’s gospel of love.
