"The obsession is a deeply committed and beautifully written analysis of our society's increasing demand that women be thin.

Pt. 1 looks at goddess-worshipping religions of the ancient past, linking the loss of goddess-centered societies with today's environmental crisis. Pt. 2 discusses the witch-hunts in Europe, with false accusations and trials which led to massive torture and burnings at the stake, and ultimately to the destruction of an organic way of life, presenting the theory that widespread violence against women and neglect of our environment can be traced back to those times. In Pt. 3, authors, teachers, social activists and feminists explore manifestations of contemporary women's spirituality in the Western world, envisioning a sustainable future where domination is replaced with respect

By turns provocative and startlingly revealing, MY LIFE AS A BOY is the story of a woman trying to figure out what love is, trying to understand what happens between desire and the determination to possess the object of that desire, and discovering what it's like to go after what you want. "Chernin writes with the grace of a poet and the insight of a psychotherapist, bringing the shape-shifting nature of intimate relationship alive."--San Francisco Examiner and Chronicle
In my father's garden : a daughter's search for a spiritual life by Kim Chernin( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 2 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
