A vindication of love: reclaiming romance for the twenty-first century

Book Cover
Average Rating
Pub. Date:

"A fierce and lively book. . . .This is one of those rare books that could make people think about their intimate lives in a new way." —New York Times Book Review

“A rousing defense of imprudent ardor and romantic excess. . . . It’s difficult to deny that [Nehring] is on to something.” —Wall Street Journal

A thinking person’s “guide” that makes the case for love in an age both cynical about and fearful of strong passion. Bold and challenging,A Vindication of Love has inspired praise and controversy, and brilliantly reinvigorated the romance debate. A perfect choice for readers of Alain de Botton’sHow Proust Can Change Your Life and Pierre Bayard’s How to Talk About Books You Haven’t Read.
