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.
