The woman who gave birth to her mother : tales of transformation in women's lives by Kim Chernin( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and German and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kim Chernin (zuletzt BA 12/99) setzt auf "die dynamische Kraft", die lebensverändernde Macht von Geschichten: Wir gestalten Geschichten und sie gestalten uns. Die Mutter-Tochter-Geschichten ihres Titels sind belebt von "ausgedachten Charakteren, die einmal wirkliche Personen waren". Authentische Geschichten werden verfremdet zu anderen authentischen Geschichten, die jedoch "den strukturellen Kern der emotionalen Situation" bewahren. Töchter erschaffen sich im Erzählen ihre wirkliche Mutter oder eine symbolische Mutter. Sie lehren ihre Mütter, Mütter zu sein, oder lernen, sich selbst zu bemuttern. Die Tochter ist "die Frau, die ihre Mutter zur Welt brachte" (so auch der amerikanische Originaltitel). Was sich dabei im Nachhinein als roter Faden erkennen lässt, verschlingt und verschränkt sich im Erzählen und hat mit bisherigen Mutter-Tochter-Titeln wenig zu tun. Viel dagegen mit Kim Chernin, ihrer suggestiv raunenden Diktion und ihrer stets gegenwärtigen Auseinandersetzung mit der eigenen Person und Psyche. (2) (Heidrun Küster)

In my father's garden : a daughter's search for a spiritual life by Kim Chernin( )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kim Chernin's mother was a leftist firebrand, an American Marxist at mid-century, when it was dangerous to be one. Her father, a quiet man, was no less radical. Why then, decades later, does their daughter--a liberal California psychoanalyst and writer--find herself drawn toward a spirituality that would have shocked her parents? Through three personal stories, Chernin tackles the questions that pull at all of us: how to make sense in a world whose order isn't always apparent, and how to find balance between the mind and the spirit. "Kim Chernin writes with immediacy and intimacy."--City Life, London
