Summary

"Daniel J. Tomasulo chronicles and confesses his childhood delusions, his particularly challenging experiences as a parent, and his life as a psychologist with refreshing candor and laugh-out-loud humor. His memories of being a kid--controlling streetlights, avoiding any foods with seeds lest he get pregnant, enduring his mother's cold love--are vivid, and his life as a parent is riddled with dilemmas. To start, he finds himself locked in a rubber-walled hospital room while his wife is in labor, and later he faces the necessity of giving mouth-to-mouth to his daughter's suffocating Raggedy Ann doll. As a professional who specializes in the highly personal, he traces the unusual and illuminating connections between his own life and evocative scenes from the lives of his patients"--P. [4] of cover.
