I read historical fiction, mystery, foodie memoir, and well-crafted YA (sometimes other genres).

A Natural History of Love

A Natural History of Love - Diane Ackerman Her prose- it is so... purple! So thickly, densely written, with lavish adjectives. Lavish adjectives? See, now it's happening to me too.I need to reread this, because I don't remember specifics bits of love history and lore, only the sense of her prose being over the top.
