The Technique of The Love Affair By A Gentlewoman (Doris Langley Moore) Edited with notes and commentary by Norrie Epstein (1999) This 1928 classic - playfully shocking and surprisingly practical - is now back in print, astutely annotated for the nineties. Originally published anonymously by the multitalented Doris Langley Moore (author of many books of nonfiction and fiction, and a much sought-after costume designer for film and theater), The Technique of the Love Affair is a masterfully written dialogue between the worldly "Cypria and the naive and sentimental "Saccharissa" on how to conduct - with grace and restraint - successful love affairs... A sparkling period piece and a shrewd guidebook for those who consider pleasure a serious business. The Technique of the Love Affair is brimming with unassailable, timeless insight. Now, in this new premillennial edition, it is - more than ever - a wise and witty manual on the art of love for the thinking woman. 222 pp.
