Book Description: The Long Half-Lives of Love and Trauma “invents its own genre,” wrote Sherry Turkle. “The author suspects sexual abuse in her childhood and investigates with the toolkits of an historian and ethnographer.” The result is a memoir that is what Eva Hoffman calls, “a true labor of memory, in which the story of the body is inseparable from the narrative of the self.”
Author: Helen Epstein is the author or translator of 10 books of non-fiction. Her first, Children of the Holocaust, is the classic text on inter-generational transmission of trauma. Her last, Franci’s War, is an invaluable resource for women’s experience in genocides.
