Myths of the Family (Presents)

4.07  ·  Rating details ·  14 Ratings  ·  1 Review
The family is the most difficult fantasy of our time, for nowhere do we more live a myth than in the realities of home life. Hillman humorously carries us through the agony of family entrapment to the pleasant absurdities of family embrace.

Very interesting stuff! For anyone that is a part of a family (everyone! even if they are not in your life), you might be delighted with some of the unique perspectives HIllman brings to the table in this short book. I was able to listen on audiobook through my local library with Overdrive. Listened to it twice. I've also read The Soul's Code and The Dream and the Underworld by HIllman.
