• Straight Talk – February 14, 2013

    Click here for this week’s Straight Talk with Nick Lawrence

    Today Nick talks about the book How The French Invented Love, by researcher and former professor of French, Marilyn Yalom, is a fascinating, scholarly, and user-friendly look back at the origins of our concepts of romantic and sensual love, as seen through the eyes of French culture and literature. You’ll hear about “Courtly” love, “Gallant” love and “Republican” love (not what you think it is), and how the French have historically treated: love, marriage, infidelity, sexuality and romance. Discover what role passion and pleasure mean to the French, both past and present. You may be surprised!
