P1: GDP/GDW/GIR P2: GDW/GEE/GDP Sex Roles [sers] PP201-342143 June 24, 2001 13:35 Style ﬁle version Nov. 19th, 1999 Sex Roles, Vol. 44, Nos. 5/6, 2001 Book Review Boy Crazy: Remembering Adolescence, Therapies and Dreams. By Janet Sayers. London: Routledge, 1998, 185 pp. $24.99 (paperback). I think I was born this way: a compulsive, but picky, reader. Consequently, it is the books I review for publication that force me to persevere until the end, and I am often grateful for the experience. Boy Crazy is a case in point. I did not enjoy reading it, but in the end, I am glad I did. Janet Sayers is a British psychoanalyst, best known by feminists for her 1993 book, Mothers of Psychoanalysis: Helene Deutsch, Karen Horney, Anna Freud, and Melanie Klein. Boy Crazy was written in response to a request, “some years ago,” from Carol Gilligan to speak at a conference about adolescence. Sayers realized that almost nothing had been written about adolescence from a feminist and psychoanalytic perspective, and of course, that “adolescence is often crucial to making us what we are as adults” (p. 3). This book, then, is her effort to ﬁll the gap. What I liked best
