Blue beyond blue : extraordinary tales for ordinary dilemmas by Lauren Slater( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mermaids, seal women, little girls born of eggs, old men born of prematurely aged parents, and other strange creatures populate award-winning author Lauren Slater's stories of magic, psychology, pain, and release. Slater depicts the modern-day psychopharmaceutical industry - and our ongoing obsession with chemically synthetic solutions - the staleness and surprises embedded in married erotic love, the conflicts in the mother-daughter bond, the universal struggle with dependency and addiction, and more. In addition, she explicitly and implicitly explores the value that fairy tales and fables still have in our culture as tools of healing and illumination."--Jacket

Playing house : notes of a reluctant mother by Lauren Slater( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lauren Slater's rocky childhood left her cold to the idea of ever creating a family of her own, but a husband, two dogs, two children, and three houses later, she came around to the challenges, trials, and unexpected rewards of playing house. Boldly honest, these biographical pieces reveal Slater at her wittiest and most deeply personal. She describes her journey from fiercely independent young woman to wife and mother, all while coping with mental illness. She tells of a chemical fire that rekindled the flame in her ailing relationship with her husband; she reflects on her decision to have an abortion, and then later to have children despite suffering from severe depression; she examines sex, love, mastectomies, and how nannies can be intrusive while dogs become family. Beautifully written, often humorous, and always revealing, these stories scrutinize the complex questions surrounding family life, offering up sometimes uncomfortable truths."--Publisher description

Prozac diary by Lauren Slater( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Today millions of people take Prozac, but Lauren Slater was one of the first. In this memoir, she describes what it's like to spend most of your life feeling crazy - and then to wake up one day and find yourself in the strange state of feeling well. And then to face the challenge of creating a whole new life. Once inhibited, Slater becomes spontaneous. Once terrified of maintaining a job, she accepts a teaching position and ultimately earns several degrees in psychology. Once lonely, she finds love with a man who adores her. Slater is wonderfully thoughtful and articulate about all of these changes, and also about the downside of taking Prozac: such matters as dependency, sexual dysfunction, and Prozac "poop-out."
