A first-person account of a psychoanalysis written in the form of a memoir. "The undertow in this autobiography and the motivating force for the author's five years of psychoanalysis is her fear that she will repeat her mother's experience and slip into mental illness." -- The Boston Globe

"Recommended for Women's Studies." -- Lib. Journal

"A complex study - engrossing and rewarding." -- Kirkus

"Her inner strength brings her triumphantly through." -- PW

About the Author:

Mary Lou Shields grew up poor in Boston but with the help of some wonderful teachers and librarians, she got accepted to Radcliffe College and has made Cambridge her home ever since. She is currently at work on her second book, In My Own Footsteps: The Making of a Psychoanalytic Memoir.

Review:

"...a humane and authentic book written by another voice from the trenches." -- Joanne Greenberg, author of I Never Promised You a Rosegarden

"In Sea Run, which takes place in and around Cambridge, Mary Lou Shields traces her progress and pitfalls from the fifties to the late seventies... Since the book has been drawn from many years of journals, the dialogue is remarkably fresh. Much of it concerns what passes between Shields and her analyst, whose assumptions she passes through the fiery furnace of her newfound feminism even as he is analyzing her." -- Mopsy Strange Kennedy, The Boston Globe
