By Janet Dallet

(5.00)
This book uses stories, myths and case studies to show something deep in the psyche that resembles a large, primordial animal, whose support of human agendas is not entirely reliable. This irrational part of ourselves finds expression in a multitude of contradictory ways. It is responsible for the miraculous healing of body and soul as well as perpetuating horrifying forms of violence.

Fiction. Women's Studies. "The expert translation of this almost Gothic story lifts the veil on the place where environment meets the psyche, on women's sensuality and wit. A gift of Portuguese women writing to the English reader." -Lisa Katz
