About this title:

Synopsis:

The author of Iron John journeys beyond the individual psyche to examine the problems of American culture as a whole, explaining how we have become an infantilized society and challenging readers to rediscover individual maturity and responsibility. 400,000 first printing. $400,000 ad/promo. Tour.

Review: Poet and storyteller Robert Bly takes the baby boomers to task in this highly charged exposure of midlifers' values. Having become jaded by the abuses of authority, the boomers of North America have torn down the traditional hierarchy within their families and within their communities. What's left is a "cultural flatness," says Bly, where adults cling to self-absorbed adolescent values, television talk shows have more clout than elders, children are spiritually abandoned to fend for themselves, and in the place of community we have built shopping malls. As always, Bly relies on mythology, legends, and poetry to illustrate the morals of his stories. Ultimately this is a hopeful piece of work, nudging midlifers to take on the responsibilities (and therefore the rewards) of adulthood.
