Reprint. Originally published: New York: Dial, 1956; London: Michael Joseph, 1957.

When David meets the sensual Giovanni in a bohemian bar, he is swept into a passionate love affair.

But his girlfriend's return to Paris destroys everything.

Unable to admit to the truth, David pretends the liaison never happened - while Giovanni's life descends into tragedy.

United by the theme of love, the writings in the Great Loves series span over two thousand years and vastly different worlds.

Readers will be introduced to love's endlessly fascinating possibilities and extremities: romantic love, platonic love, erotic love, gay love, virginal love, adulterous love, parental love, filial love, nostalgic love, unrequited love, illicit love, not to mention lost love, twisted and obsessional love...
