Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Seeking to redress the homophobia pervasive in Jungian theory, this ``first collection of papers from a Jungian perspective focused exclusively on same-sex love'' includes 18 insightful essays by Jungian analysts, psychotherapists, and writers--some gay, some heterosexual, some male, some female. Beginning with accessible personal stories, the collection moves on to provocative cultural analyses of art, literature, film, and myth, then closes with a few jargon-laden theoretical treatises. It also seeks to emphasize the importance of inner work for lay homosexual communities. Somewhat heavy going at times, but recommended for its stimulating ideas.-- James E. Van Buskirk, San Francisco P.L.
