LABOR OF LOVE The Invention of Dating

by | Read by Kyra Miller

Contemporary Culture • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

In this richly textured overview of what we now broadly call dating, gender and culture expert Moira Weigel taps into a historical arc that will be fascinating to anyone interested in how people connect in romantic partnerships. From arranged marriages to Tinder hookups, her survey of courting and sex is blunt, judgment-free, and quite enlightening. Sounding mature but never pedagogical, narrator Kyra Miller performs this audiobook with the hushed intensity of someone sharing a secret or a novel insight. Her unusual approach stands out at first but ultimately works well with this author's writing. With her creative phrasing adding a pleasing flow, Miller's approach communicates genuine respect for the author's scholarship as well as the timeliness of her topic.
