Translated from the Italian by Ann McGarrell Half-memoir, half-meditation, 'Eros' presents an account of the commanding role of physical love in a man's life. The tone is intimate, the details are frank, the love described is always physical, though this is far from being a salacious booked. Attacked by some women, defended by others, the narrator's love of women as women, as physical complements of men, as the object of desire, is always at the centre and Bevilacqua's goal is to identify the deepest meaning of congress.
