  • THE LOVER’S COMPANION

    With a keen eye and her trademark titillating humor, Dr. Ruth Westheimer explores how art and verse can enhance desire in this lush literary aphrodisiac. The selections, compiled by editor Charles Sullivan, couple Ginsberg with Hockney, Donne with Lichtenstein, Sappho with O’Keeffe. And as in the best relationships, each unconventional match exposes new, surprising aspects of both partners. Through chapter introductions and commentary, Dr. Ruth, helpful and refreshingly honest, reveals these nuances — and the ways in which they can touch readers.

    The full-color illustrations, all masterpieces, include paintings by Chagall, Magritte, and Bronzino, photographs by Man Ray and Nan Goldin, and erotic sculptures and prints from ancient India and Japan. Pairing a total of 60 poems and artworks, this stimulating anthology is sure to please lovers of all persuasions.
