The book is very diverse. It includes straight, gay male, and lesbian couplings. It includes writers, painters, and sculptors. It speaks of cross-generational couples and interracial couples. Most importantly, it doesn't imply that all these couples lasted forever. Sometimes, it emphasizes divorce and break-ups in its analyses. The book has few male authors; so in terms of subject and writers, it's in many ways a women's studies text.
The book is thick but that is because of the huge endnotes and reprint permissions. The work is rigorous, but it doesn't take long to read individual chapters. I just can't believe I never heard of this text before. It's simply precious, and almost priceless.
