About this title
A bouquet of delights for those who love love and have a passion for the English language includes ""The Boy Meets Girl Alphabet of Love,"" ""Hot Talk,"" ""Love Letters in the Sand,"" and ""Ninety-Nine Ways to Leave Your Lover."" 25,000 first printing.From Publishers Weekly:
In a saucy, playful style Ferraro takes readers on an etymological grand tour of the language of romance through the ages, and doesn't scrimp on sexual and "dirty" words. Terms only vaguely related to love-such as those covering the world's oldest profession-are here too. Chapters are divided by type of "love talk"; for example, "baby" talk (the language of new lovers and new mothers is uncannily similar), "hot" (sexy) talk, "love bites" (the link between food and love), animal urges, and love and "pet" names. There is also a chapter on "Ninety-Four Ways to Leave Your Lover," and memorable love (including Dear John) letters of the famous, infamous and obscure. A perfect Valentine's Day gift for language aficionados as well as lovers.
