Affection, pride, uninhibited devotion, and just the redeemingly provocative touch of ginger (or I think I see it) of the kind that says, If you don’t see what I see in him, you are blind. When he was almost killed, the look on the one photograph that caught her full in the face en route to the hospital was the look on the face of the Pietà in St. Peter’s, the same look one saw on the face of Jackie Kennedy when she stood in Air Force One while Lyndon Johnson took the oath of office, replacing as president the man whose corpse lay a few feet away.

“I don’t think it’s as frantic as casual sex was in the sixties,” she says, noting that modern ‘hooking up’ isn’t as exciting without the context of a sexual revolution. Besides, she adds: “In the long run, sexual pleasure is just one part of what men and women want from each other.” At 100, Dr. Zussman is still a practicing sex therapist in New York City.
