Adult Children of Divorce Speak Out about Growing Up With--And Moving Beyond--Parental Divorce: About Growing Up With-And Moving Beyond Parental Divor

Claire Gallant Berman, Author Simon & Schuster $18.45 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-73149-6
The legacy of divorce is an omnipresent part of life for many of the men and women interviewed by Berman, a journalist, who served as national president of the Stepfamily Association of America. The interviewees (ages one to 16 when the divorces occurred), in recalling divorces that in some cases caused eviction from their homes or strife with the noncustodial parent, reveal a lingering psychological fallout from this critical childhood event. The book establishes a commonality of concerns and offers guidelines--on ``keeping the lines of contact open'' between parents and children, on confronting anger, etc.--to mitigate the ongoing effects of divorce on the lives of children. First serial to Cosmopolitan, Self and Family Circle; Psychotherapy Book Club alternate. (Jan.)
