Abstract

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.
