The End of the Novel of Love by Vivian Gornick

The End of the Novel of Love

by Vivian Gornick

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
4 Hrs. 14 Min.


In this book of new and collected critical essays, Vivian Gornick turns the searching intelligence and honesty of insight that mark her memoirs on the work - and the lives - of writers she admires, among them Jean Rhys, Willa Cather, Christina Stead, and George Meredith. In doing so, she examines a century of novels of love-in-the-Western-world and comes to see that, for most writers, it is the drama of our angry and frightened selves in the presence of love that is our modern preoccupation.
