Up Front: 2sex and the Post-Mastectomy Woman

Linda Dackman, Author, Lin Dachman, Author Viking Books $17.95 (144p) ISBN 978-0-670-82324-6
Following the trauma of a mastectomy, Dackman, a museum public relations director in San Francisco, found little help in books or support groups regarding the effects of the operation on sexuality. In this candid account, expanded from a 1987 Vogue article, she discusses her experience. Dackman details her surgery and breast reconstruction and goes on to describe altered relationships with family, friends and lovers. Reclaiming her body's wellness and rebuilding her self-image proved the keys to risking her first desperate, but eventually successful sexual intimacies. The book will be a boon to readers in a similar situation. First serial to Self. (Feb.)
