Narcissistic giving: a study of people who cheat in relationships
In his new book, Gerald Alper whose Portrait of the Artist as a Young Patient, according to one noted critic, "represents one of the most important modern studies of the psyche of the creative personality that we have," and whose recent, The Singles Scene, has already been cited as an essential source book on contemporary relationships in a syndicated feature article appearing in the Los Angeles Times (Paul-Lynn Parks, January 30, 1995) continues his brilliant exploration into the roots of intimacy.
In this richly descriptive catalogue of all too recognizable everyday examples, Alper, who has gained national prominence as a psychotherapist, chronicles the unconscious defenses, gambits and strategies by which frightened people seek to escape the imagined terrors of relating to one another and to themselves.
