Books That Make You Swoon From a Real-Life Love Stories

When we’re caught in its whirlwind, love can spur the greatest passions, creativity, ideas and transformations. Few books illustrate such a concept as well as that of “My Love Affair: Thorns & Roses”, the new autobiographical work from multi-talented actress, director and stage producer Natalia Lazarus.

Natalia is also the Founder & CEO of the Los Angeles Performing Arts Conservatory—including its iconic Promenade Playhouse, which she founded in 1996.

“My Love Affair: Thorns & Roses” told in poetic verse and featuring Picasso’s artwork within its pages, was inspired when Natalia was starring in Jeffery Hatcher’s dramatic, two-character play “A Picasso in Paris”. Across its beautiful, alluring story, it charts love found and love lost, emotional renewal and new beginnings.
