"In Romance Writing, Lynne Pearce implores us – with remarkable insight and unwavering perception – to reconsider our grand narratives of love. By positioning a new and thoroughgoing cultural history of romance, she succeeds in daring readers to investigate the endlessly seductive and confounding languages of literary love. In so doing, Pearce accomplishes one of criticism's greatest of feats: her book illuminates our minds, while challenging us to ponder the mysteries that live in our hearts."
Kenneth Womack, Penn State Altoona
"Lynne Pearce's Romance Writing spans an extraordinary range, from chivalry to chick-lit, and bravely pits romantic love against an array of its enemies: death, sex, marriage and self-help lifestyles."
Chris Baldick, Goldsmiths College
