Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Is a kiss really just a kiss? This collection of quotes and black-and-white photographs proves once and for all that a kiss is hardly ever without subtext. From cynics like Jonathan Swift ("Lord! I wonder what fool it was that first invented kissing?") to the sultry Mae West ("I have found men who didn't know how to kiss. I've always found time to teach them.") to romantics like e.e. cummings ("...kisses are a better fate than wisdom.") to realists like Dr. Henry Gibbons ("A kiss is the anatomical juxtaposition of two orbicular muscles in a state of contraction."), these folks have said a mouthful about kissing.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
There are wonderful quotes from across the centuries on the power of the kiss, along with romantic pictures, recalling an innocence from a time when kisses were cherished and not merely stepping stones.
My favorite quote was by Ingrid Bergman. You'll have to read the book to know what she said. Looking it up on Google isn't fair.
