KIRKUS REVIEW

An anthology about something we all have. In addition to short fiction by Frank O'Connor (""My Oedipus Complex""), Alice Walker (""Everyday Use""), and others, Golden has included Jane Goodall's take on the nature vs. nurture dilemma in an essay about chimpanzees (""Mothers and Daughters""). There are also pieces by Pearl S. Buck, Bertolt Brecht, Michael Dorris, and Louise Erdrich, among others.
