Summary
Stating that the great romances of literature fail to show what happens after 'boy gets girl,' an uplifting inquiry into the purpose of love considers the roles of lovers whose lives have been relegated to the mundanity of routine. Tour.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Experience the miracle called love...

What is the purpose of love? Is the storm of ecstasy that we call love simply a biological urge that eventually passes--or the first stage in something much more? Is it possible for love to last, literally, forever?

In this extraordinary book, philosopher Jacob Needleman explores the greatest works of philosophy, myth, and sacred wisdom to offer a bold new interpretation of why two people are brought together in the first place. The radiant poetry of the great Sufi mystic Rumi, the revelations of St. Paul, the moving tale of Philemon and Baucis, and the words of the world's sages become, with Needleman's gentle guidance, an enthralling journey of discovery--one that reveals the secret to finding love...and staying together for a lifetime. Resonating with hope and wisdom, A Little Book on Love shows us how true love can transcend time and the difficulties of daily life. It is a precious resource for anyone who wants a relationship to last a lifetime--and beyond.
