About This Book
In The Romantic Movement, Alain de Botton explores the progress of a love affair
from first meeting to breaking up, intercut with musings on the nature of art of
love. The relationship between Alice, an advertising executive, and Eric, a
banker, is examined at every stage, supplemented by quizzes and line drawings by
the author and commentary by a chorus of great philosophers, from Descartes to
Plato to Aretha Franklin. The Romantic Movement will charm readers and lovers
alike with wit, insight, and intelligence.
"The Romantic Movement sheds light on the nature of relationships . . . The method of telling much and showing little produces a good deal of wit, cogency, and humor."
--John Updike, The New Yorker
"A reader gets whiffs of Donald Barthelme, Julian Barnes, Woody Allen, the films of Eric Rohmer . . . Mr. de Botton borrows exuberantly, and well, from his forebears . . . therein lies the buoyant charm of the approach."
--Lisa Zeidner, The New York Times Book Review
