"Here is the fascinating story of Sabina Spielrein, a young Russian woman brought to Jung's psychiatric clinic in Zurich to be cured of a serious nervous disorder.

Spielrein then confides in Freud, Jung's mentor and father figure, and he becomes confessor to them both.

The twenty-three days of the city of Alba : stories by Beppe Fenoglio( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After five decades, Fenoglio's spare, direct prose still strikes with the staccato-like ring and force of rifle fire. He creates an intimate and unvarnished portrait of his fellow partisans: an ill-equipped, malnourished mix of trained soldiers, eager farmboys, and broken old men. Antiheroes in the classic sense, they all but bumbled their way into playing a crucial role in the Allied victory of World War II, then returned home to nurse the psychological and physical wounds that lingered long after the echoes of the victory parade had faded."--Jacket

Letter to a child never born by Oriana Fallaci( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published by Rizzoli in 1975, Letter to a Child Never Born was quickly translated and sold in twenty-seven countries, becoming an extraordinary world success. It is the tragic monologue of a woman speaking with the child she carries in her womb. This letter confronts the burning theme of abortion, and the meaning of life, by asking difficult questions: Is it fair to impose life even if it means suffering? Would it be better not to be born at all? Letter to a Child Never Born touches on the real meaning of being a woman: the power to give life or not. When the book begins, the protagonist is upset after learning she is pregnant. She knows nothing about the child, except that this creature depends totally and uniquely on her own choices. The creation of another person directly within one & rsquo;s own body is a very shocking thing. The sense of responsibility is huge; it is a heavy burden that gives life to endless reflections, from the origin of our existence to the shame of our selfishness. If the child could choose, would he prefer to be born, to grow up, and to suffer, or would he return to the joyful limbo from which he came? A woman & rsquo;s freedom and individuality are also challenged by a newborn & mdash;should she renounce her freedom, her job, and her choice? What should she do at this point?
