LITHIUM FOR MEDEA • Kate Braverman
Harper & Row / 1971 / 1st edition
Hardcover / 251 pages

Lithium for Medea is a startling, intense novel which probes the limits of familial ties and the full range of sensual relationships between women and men. At the center is Rose, the narrator, confronting the four compass points of her life: her mother, Francine, dominant, assertive, supremely ambitious; her father, struck down for the second time and shadowboxing with death; her former husband, Gerald, inaccessible, consumed by his own genius; and her lover, the artist, Jason, sensuous and highly manipulative.
