About the Author

Jeanne Safer, PhD, is a psychotherapist who in her 40 years of private practice has tackled difficult issues that most people deem "taboo," including siblings with difficult or dysfunctional brothers and sisters, women making choices about motherhood, and adults struggling about whether to forgive people who have betrayed them. Dr. Safer is the author of Cain's Legacy, The Normal One, and Death Benefits.

Reviews

"The Normal One provides a great service for the siblings of truly damaged individuals, those quiet, self-denying brothers and sisters who, perhaps for the first time in their lives, will recognize in Safer a passionate advocate from the world of psychotherapy, speaking out on their behalf with a deeply intelligent, fully informed, and thoroughly welcome voice."
--The New York Times Book Review

"Revelatory...an indelible, brave, profoundly sensitive, and deeply personal look at how the 'normal' half lives, loves, resents, reconciles, sometimes denies, sometimes transcends, aches for--but never quite trusts--the consolations of family."
--O Magazine

"[A] persuasive examination of the considerable effect that...impaired brothers and sisters have upon their 'normal' siblings throughout life."
--The New York Times Book Review
