Description
From Dido to Jane Eyre, great characters of literature are often trying to figure out how to have healthy, happy relationships, just like the rest of us. And as much as things have changed since Jane Austen was writing, love itself remains largely the same. In their unique and charming relationship guide, Maura Kelly and Jack Murnighan reflect on the novels that have given them useful romantic insight. For example, in the chapter "Lightbulb in August: How to Have a Clue When He's Just Not That Into You," they use Faulkner to discuss early warning signs in a relationship, while "Infinite Gesticulating: Why Do Men Talk So Much?" uses David Foster Wallace to illuminate the male propensity to bloviate, and how to deal with it.

"A clever mash-up of dating advice and literary discussion, with the authors alternating chapters and subjects.... Probably the first time Virgil has been used for romantic advice, at least in this century—and that alone is an achievement."—NYDaily News
