The Primal Wound - Nancy Newton Verrier
The blurb on the book.
"In this classic work, Nancy Verrier examines the life-long consequences of the 'primal wound' - the wound that results when a child is separated from his or her mother - for adopted people, as they grow up & into adulthood. It provides information about pre- & perinatal psychology, attachment, bonding & the effects of loss."

On a short story kick. Ivan Turgenev "Bezhin Lea" and " Kasyan from the Beautiful Lands". Three by Chekhov. Hemingway, four but the best "The Snows of Kilimanjoro" and "Hills Like White Elephants". Reread a couple of Flannery O'Connor stories. Waiting for the complete stories of Borges to be delivered Sunday. That will be all until I get to the library for Calvino "Invisible Cities" and Guy de Maupassant short stories.


Ps I'm not trying to be pompous. :oops:
