Belonging: Stories Of Relationships
|Dimension||5 x 8, 310g|
We may no longer be talking to a sibling, yet there's no escaping the relationship. We are bound by it. We have no choice about the family we are born into, unlike our friendships, which we are free to make and unmake. But like it or not, we have a primordial need to belong. The writer Iris Murdoch said it so succinctly: There is no substitute for the comfort supplied by the utterly taken-for-granted relationship.
This book portrays a myriad of interpersonal relationships, as viewed, examined, described and appreciated by 24 authors. They range from those between family members (including that of a foster father and an adopted son, a stepmother and her stepchildren), in-laws, friends, sweethearts, Religious, gays, and lesbians, a godfather and his godsons, a former student (now an eminent writer and professors himself) and his beloved old teacher, a single woman-journalist and her dog, and even a dance instructor (D.I.) and his clients.
