What do you do when Grandpa is a commie who lives in Connecticut with his secretary/wife, and Grandaunt Kitty has just decided at the age of eighty-five that she is no longer a lesbian? How do you deal when your mother is the queen of erotica and your childhood pony has recently died of constipation? Find out in The Sex Doctors in the Basement.
Molly Jong-Fast grew up in a town house with a pink door and paintings of ladies playing naked Twister. There were world-famous therapists living in her cellar, a secretary with a brain tumor, a nanny who was a numbers runner, and grandparents who revealed that they had sex on their first date. Leading therapists agree: a normal childhood.
In The Sex Doctors in the Basement, Molly Jong-Fast takes us on a tour of her big fat Jewish bohemian upbringing. With the same keen insight, effortless cool, and buoyant wit that won her legions of devoted readers in Normal Girl, she offers a riotous and affecting coming-of-age story that is both uniquely weird and weirdly universal.
