Description
 
Adrianne Blue (au). In legend, a kiss can turn a frog into a prince, & in Hollywood a kiss can transform a beauty into a legend. In real life, the kiss has even greater powers, maintains author Blue, in this funny, sexy, & insightful book. Drawing on biology, psychology, history, anthropology, poetry, & the visual arts, Blue takes the reader on a compelling voyage of osculatory discovery, pausing at the love scenes of Garbo, Brancusi’s famous sculpture, & even animal & tribal practices. Tracing its beginnings in an infant’s need to suckle, Blue tracks the symbolic, cultural, & emotional weight of kissing down through the ages, concluding that few exchanges bring so much pleasure or play such an important role in our lives.
