KIRKUS REVIEW

A discussion of primogeniture -- not necessarily a privilege -- deals with the conflicts which may come up- and points up the satisfactions which can go along with seniority. The literally preconceived attitudes, old myths and customs, which surround the first born and the relationships to siblings are fully covered; there is also attention to special situations -(adoption, death) which may affect the eldest child. Edith Neisser who wrote Brothers and Sisters offers applicable guidance.
