Count the Ways
From royalty to rock stars, Count the Ways delves into some of the most captivating love affairs of our times, including the obstacles, dramas, joys, and not-always-happy endings. Learn how love conquered the British monarchy when Edward VIII abdicated his throne in favor of the American divorceée Wallis Simpson. Wonder why the love of Lee Krasner kept painter Jackson Pollock sane, yet the devotion of F. Scott Fitzgerald drove his wife, Zelda, mad. Witness the courage of love with Christopher and Dana Reeve, as their marriage overcame a tragic accident to give new meaning to the vows "in sickness and in health." Observe how Ronald and Nancy Reagan proved that love and politics can mix and how Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow showed how love and crime do not. And don't forget Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, the tumultuously enamored couple for whom fighting was itself a kind of lovemaking. These stories and many others are here, each accompanied by a striking black-and-white photo of the couple. Love stories are too often reduced to either storybook romance or scandal, but-as Count the Ways proves-the truth behind them often turns out to be more interesting . . . and more romantic.
