This is an auction for DOWN WITH LOVE by Barbara Novak.

"Abstain from love . . . Indulge in chocolate . . . Enjoy sex la carte! Can a woman living in the early '60s lead such a life? Barbara Novak believed so and made it the premise of her revolutionary bestseller - a feminist manifesto inviting women to say no to love and yes to career, self-fulfillment, and independence. Follow Barbara as she conquers the bestseller lists and quickly becomes the target of notorious ladies' man Catcher Block, a hotshot journalist determined to prove her book a lie. What happens when the woman with all the answers meets the man of many questions? Filled with frantic roundelays, wild instances of mistaken identities, and ever-changing perceptions about love and sex, this tantalizing tell-allpenned by Novak herself - provides the low-down on her showdown with this man-about-town." review:

"FIVER STARS!!! The twist at the end of the book in completely unpredictable and surprising! The characters are charming and flirtatious. Barbara Novak and Catcher Block are made for each other. The games that they play with each other were simply adorable and leave you with wanting more! Right after I read this wonderful book, I bought myself a copy of Down With Love DVD. I have to say, this is the first time, that I thought that the book and the movie are both on the same level. The movie was just as fantastic as the book."
