Item description for Broken Fathers/Broken Sons: A Psychoanalyst Remembers (Contemporary Psychoanalytic Studies) by Gerald J. Gargiulo, Matthew Wright, Courtney Gaskins, Sue Moses, Jeremy Seekings, Marta Rondon & David Mungello...

This memoir is a story of loss and gain, of alienation and reconciliation, and of how such experiences go into the making of a psychoanalyst. In sharing his own very troubled family history, his decade as a Carmelite monk, his marriage and career as a psychoanalyst, Gargiulo shows how the diverse pieces of ones life can fit together into something that is meaningful and real. This is one persons life - but it relates to us all. We are bound together, each of us, the author writes, in our living, our troubles and our joys. As we hear another's story, we are, simultaneously, writing our own autobiography. Broken Fathers/Broken Sons is a rare combination of memoir and musing. Playful and wise, it is an ode to what is broken inside all of us, as well as to what seeks allows us to put back together both questions and quests, as we journey out of a decade of looking for a better father in God in a Carmelite monastery, into psychoanalytic practice. Out of one mans coming to terms with the damage of a painful father/son relationship, comes a poignant and fierce cry against inequality, be it between parent and child, or analyst and patient. Erika Duncan, Novelist Founder of Herstory Writers Workshop In this intensely personal and humane memoir Dr. Gargiulo plumbs the depths of relationships between a father and a son. Not since Turgenevs Fathers and Sons have these issues been so keenly examined and so directly held up to scrutiny. The precepts of psychoanalytic thought brought forward by Gargiulo speak to everyman in this book that merits a place on ones bookshelf next to the work of the great Russian novelist. Norman Itzkowitz, Professor Emeritus, Princeton University.

Reviews - What do customers think about Broken Fathers/Broken Sons: A Psychoanalyst Remembers (Contemporary Psychoanalytic Studies)?

A Psychoanalyt's Life  Apr 22, 2008
It's not often that we get a picture of internal change and transformation as a psychoanalyst looks at his own life and the problems of living. Depth of insight and compassionate understanding are not always joined to such illuminating effect as is achieved by Gerry Gargiulo in "Broken Fathers/Broken Sons." It is a beautiful and moving picture of acceptance and reconciliation as the truth is told about one's own struggle to live fully and the inevitable pain and conflict of interpersonal relations with those close to us. It's a triumph and statement of faith--disappointment cannot be avoided, but neither can the need to confront and overcome our distress. It's a beautiful telling.

Lee Jenkins, Ph.D., Emeritus Professor of English, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, CUNY, and psychoanalyst in private practice, New York City.
A Tale of Resilience  Apr 6, 2008

This book is a moving and courageous account by Dr. Gerald Gargiulo about how he determined to transcend a painful childhood of feeling like a "broken son", a "Humpty Dumpty" to his disappointing "broken father". In his poignant search for a meaningful identity he first turns to God and a Carmelite monastery, and then, eventually, becomes a psychoanalyst, with special compassion for the patients who consult him, and a great capacity for forgiveness and acceptance. The book is beautifully written, and, once begun, I couldn't put it down.
Lora Heims Tessman Ph.D.
