Riassunto: When her parents died and her marriage disintegrated within the span of a few months, art historian and performance artist Joanna Frueh entered a painful period of grief and mourning. This book is about how she healed herself and in the process explored the vast range of her potential as a woman, for mind inseparable from the body, for being truly alive. "Swooning Beauty" is an ornate, intimate memoir of discovery and healing. Frueh's path to recovery lay through a profound examination of her intuitions, desires, fantasies, dreams, and emotions; her capacity for pleasure - visual, sensual, intellectual, gastronomic, and erotic; and her sense of her own heroic female identity. Hers is the passionate voice of a creative, intelligent woman scrutinizing the nature of love in all its forms - including self-love - and the ways of being that make us free, flexible, more fully real and more fully human. The result is an engaging view into the rich and colorful inner life of a woman at the threshold of middle age, of the blossoming of mind and spirit that comes after suffering and self-realization. Pleasure, she concludes, "is the absence of lack. Self-love is a necessary plenitude. Vigilance in love brings us freedom. Freedom is not an absolute whose attainment is humanly impossible. Yogis say that the self that is not ego is free. That self is the spacious heart, the spacious mind." Frueh offers us wisdom and comfort for the journey into middle age, and the deep pleasure of encountering a generous, lively spirit and a remarkably spacious mind.

From the Author: "I am recognized as a trailblazer, and Swooning Beauty is a trailblazing book. It answers Freud's question, 'What do women want?' with 'Women want pleasure, and it is theirs for the having.' Swooning Beauty is a psychological memoir that inspires women to swoon over themselves, to celebrate the pleasures of beauty, which is available in women's own bodies and sexuality, in their surroundings—home and garden—and in their relationships with family, friends, lovers, and partners."

"I wrote Swooning Beauty after major events in my personal life spurred self-transformation. As I explore the pleasures of my personal beauty and everyday life, from childhood through now in my mid-fifties, I offer myself as a model. Not because I'm perfect—which, of course, I'm not—but because I'm real. Which means that doubt, frustration, disappointment, grief, and conflict have, at times, occupied if not obsessed me. Importantly, joy and beauty have occupied me more."
