The Crane Dance: Taking Flight in Midlife
by William Finger
This memoir recounts how job loss triggered Finger to come to grips with long buried guilt as a white Mississippian and a family history of depression. His responses to major life transitions had hobbled him in dealing with fatherhood, breadwinning, and vocation. Drawing on the men’s movement, expressive arts, meditation, anti-depressants and therapy, he discovered a new vitality for life.
