Where The Heart Roams

Watch the Trailer

PBS Premiere: July 30, 1991


Romance novels comprise nearly half the paperback books sold in America. Chiffon-shrouded, jewel-laden, flower-bedecked Barbara Cartland has written hundreds of them. And filmmaker George Csicsery has given his heart to this fascinating subculture where all the women are beautiful, all the men are mysterious and all the endings are happy.

Critical Acclaim

A delectable overview of the purveyors of palpitating pulp fiction and their breathless fans... scintillating... a considerable achievement, a sparkling and adroit slice of American life that defies easy classification.”

— Judy Stone,
San Francisco Chronicle

An excellent documentary, and Csicsery is to be particularly praised for his skillful non-judgmental treatment of the he follows the love Train, which took romance writers across the country in 1983”

— Harper Barnes,
St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Insightful, poignant, surprisingly candid, occasionally searing and genuinely off-beat”
