My lie : a true story of false memory by Meredith Maran( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Meredith Maran lived a daughter's nightmare: she accused her father of sexual abuse, then realized, nearly too late, that he was innocent. During the 1980s and 1990s, tens of thousands of Americans became convinced that they had repressed memories of childhood sexual abuse, and then, decades later, recovered those memories in therapy. Journalist, mother, and daughter Meredith Maran was one of them. Her accusation and estrangement from her father caused her sons to grow up without their only grandfather, divided her family into those who believed her and those who didn't, and led her to isolate herself on "Planet Incest," where "survivors" devoted their lives, and life savings, to recovering memories of events that had never occurred. Maran unveils her family's devastation and ultimate redemption against the backdrop of the sex-abuse scandals, beginning with the infamous McMartin preschool trial, that sent hundreds of innocents to jail-several of whom remain imprisoned today. Exploring the psychological, cultural, and neuroscientific causes of this modern American witch-hunt, My Lie asks: how could so many people come to believe the same lie at the same time' What has neuroscience discovered about the brain's capacity to create false memories and encode false beliefs' What are the "big lies" gaining traction in American culture today-and how can we keep them from taking hold'My Lie is a wrenchingly honest, unexpectedly witty, and profoundly human story that proves the personal is indeed political-and the political can become painfully personal

We're face-to-face with seventeen-year-old Mike, whose life revolves around selling, smoking, and snorting speed; fifteen-year-old Tristan -- the boy next door -- who can't get enough pot, pills, or vodka; and sixteen-year-old Zalika, a runaway, crack dealer, and prostitute since the age of twelve. Combining powerful on-the-street reporting and groundbreaking research, Dirty is essential reading for every parent and professional who works with or cares about children or teenagers
Behind the bedroom door : getting it, giving it, loving it, missing it( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We may not admit it, but we're all curious about what goes on in other people's bedrooms. After all, we live in a world saturated with sex, which makes it tough not to wonder how we measure up'and even tougher to talk about our intimate experiences honestly. In this frank, poignant collection, twenty-six acclaimed writers go Behind the Bedroom Door and lay bare the messy, mind-blowing, often hilarious encounters that make up a woman's history. By sharing their stories, authors like Susan Cheever, Hope Edelman, and Julie Powell bravely open a window on the passions, predilections and problems that we encounter between the sheets. In doing so, they reassure us that whatever we feel, whatever we do or don't do in the bedroom, we're not alone. Telling the truth about sex'how we like it, how often we get it, how it affects us'isn't easy. This eye-opening anthology tells the truth about women's intimate lives, shattering some deeply entrenched myths about what goes on in the bedrooms of real women along the way: Susan Cheever upends conventional notions about women, sex, and sentiment in her essay "In Praise of One-Night Stands."' Sex is the last thing on Lauren Slater's mind when the bestselling author and psychologist reveals a few surprising truths, even joys, about her virtually sexless marriage in "Overcome."' Julie Powell serves up a searing chronicle of an illicit affair in "Lost in Space"; and novelist Valerie Frankel takes a decidedly lighter view in "Ouch, You're Lying on My Hair." Whether you're twenty or seventy, single or perpetually coupled up, these frank, seriously sexy essays provide a deeply illuminating, ultimately comforting no-holds-barred look at our most private selves. Gutsy and provocative, they reveal a great deal about how far we've come'and how far we still have to go. From the Hardcover edition
