Fierce Attachments: A Memoir

Vivian Gornick, Author Simon & Schuster $10 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-65757-4
This supple, energized memoir chronicles Gornick's (Essays in Feminism) explosive relationship with her mother and her unsuccessful battle to reject a legacy of hatred, depression and humiliation. Gornick is ""an able storyteller with a keen ear for dialogue,'' but, according to PW, her work bogs down with ``therapy-talk and self-indulgence.'' (May)
