The Love Book: Classic and Contemporary Poems, Letters and Prose on the Wonderful (But Troublesome) Theme of Love by Allie EsiriAs a poetry lover, I was thrilled to be able to read (perhaps devour is a better word) this book. The selections run the gamut from ancient to modern, from sonnets to song lyrics, from Shakespeare to Bob Dylan, and I must say that I found very little to quibble with here. Every literary format is covered, letters, prose, as is probably every aspect of love. I could see this being used as a reference for writers, definitely as a conversation piece, and perhaps as a book club selection. There was so much material in the book that discussion topics would be plentiful and as varied as the selections covered. This is the kind of work that you can put down and pick up at will, you can read out of order. I will use it as a reference piece for whenever words fail me.

Kate and Allie lyrics - Friends by John Lefler and Ralph Schuckett
Kate and Allie, which ran on CBS from 19 March to 22 May , was the brainchild of Sherry Coben who came up with the idea for the series while attending a high school reunion. There she noticed that a couple of divorcees who seemed unhappy and dissatisfied found comfort in sharing with each other. Coben worked with this germinal notion and successfully pitched the resulting script, originally entitled, "Two Mommies," to Michael Ogiens, then head of New York program development at CBS. Ogiens liked the script because it contained fresh material that dealt with a real issue of the day--single parenthood. Kate and Allie was an instant success, ranking fourth the week it debuted, garnering consistently high ratings thereafter, and earning Jane Curtin two consecutive Emmys and Bill Persky, one. The characters and the issues they dealt with obviously appealed to the program's audience.

I was about 5 when I had already realised that I was never going to marry a man, and wanted a wife instead. This was the mids.
The test name for the script was entitled "Two Mommies" and was seized upon by Saint James who was able to use the show as a way to work without relocating her family from Litchfield, Connecticut. Jane Curtin was initially not interested in doing the sitcom, but after speaking with director Bill Persky, she decided to take the role. Cold opening dialog sequences between Susan Saint James and Curtin documenting city life were featured, shot on location in Manhattan with no laugh track. The theme song played instrumentally over the title shot of the Empire State Building. Under pressure from higher-ups at CBS to quash the suggestion that Kate and Allie were lesbians, the producers were instructed to show Kate and Allie entering separate bedrooms to sleep at the end of each episode; that pressure may have been the impetus for an episode showing Kate and Allie pretending to be lesbians when they were faced with a large increase in rent. During the taping of the fourth season, Saint James was pregnant and her pregnancy was hidden by taping her behind a desk, under a sheet in a hospital bed, or in a bubble bath.
