Description: Offering enchantment to a disenchanted age, this intelligent, lyrical, and multifaceted book explores the perennial appeal of romance, and its essential role in art, philosophy, history, literature, and humans' relationships with each other and with the natural world. Expanding the idea of romance far past "boy-girl" sentimentality, Barbara Lazear Ascher defines it as yearning, hope, and reverence for the unattainable that can redeem passion, imagination, and civilization in our everyday lives. Provocative and enlightening, Dancing in the Dark challenges the readers to perceive and experience what matters in life, engaging their hearts as well as their minds.
-- Barbara Lazear Ascher is a contributing editor at Self with a monthly column.
-- Ascher's work has appeared in Elle, Vogue, European Travel and Life, Redbook, Mademoiselle, and many other magazines.
