Toklas, Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and Priscilla Beaulieu, John Lennon and Yoko Ono - while we're familiar with all of these people as individuals, we also associate them with the grand, sometimes fiery passion they shared with their partners.

From angry sparks flying to love at first sight, the meetings shared in this book give us a look at what makes that one great love.
