Men in love : men's sexual fantasies : the triumph of love over rage by Nancy Friday( Book )

64 editions published between 1980 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 1,037 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An extraordinary, explicitly masculine journey, Men In Love develops a startlingly honest portrayal of what it means to be a man in contemporary America. Here are the unexpurgated dreams, fantasies and fetishes that excite and obsess men today. In creating this historic study, Nancy Friday listened -- without disapproval, apology or censorship -- to the candid responses of thousands of men aged fourteen through sixty. She gave them a legitimate arena where they could share their "secret gardens" -- the hidden and forbidden but nonetheless real and true. Much more than a litany of erotica, this unique volume doesn't tell us how men should love. It tells us how men do love -- a stunning insight into the desires that dwell within men's psyches... and their hearts."--Publisher's description

Through her life story and commentary on subjects ranging from fairy tales to today's fashion runaways, from feminist male-bashing to the emergence of the male beauty object; the author offers an exploration of the revolutionary new role of looks in the relationships between and within the sexes

Informed by close readings of psychological treatises on jealousy as well as anecdotal interviews, she offers new insights into jealousy at every stage of life--from childhood to old age. The author of the iconic bestseller My Secret Garden, Nancy Friday's strength as a writer is her courage in tackling incredibly intimate, personal topics head-on and with astonishing honesty. Here, she turns her focus toward an emotional issue that often cripples loving relationships--and shows new pathways toward healing

Ma mere, mon miroir by Nancy Friday( Book )

12 editions published between 1977 and 2010 in French and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A partir de son expérience vécue, l'auteur explore les relations fille-mère. Selon lui, de l'identification à la mère dépend en très grande partie l'identité et l'épanouissement de la fille sur le plan de la personnalité globale. Il existe une symbiose mère-fille, invisible mais essentielle psychologiquement. Dans son récit introspectif et en grande partie autobiographique, l'auteur insiste sur des aspects reliés à la sexualité et à la vie affective. Avant d'écrire son texte, elle a consulté quelques spécialistes de disciplines variées sur les problèmes de l'identité féminine dans la perspective de la relation mère-fille. Sans être essentiel, l'ouvrage est intéressant
