Pandora

Title:
ISBN:

Pandora is the trailblazing pre-quel to Sylvia Fraser’s internationally acclaimed My Father’s House: a Memoir of Incest and Healing.

It is the sexually loaded psychological bestseller that helped the author become aware that she had a multiple personality, resulting from her father’s sexual abuse of her. For fans of “My Father’s House;” for those who have suffered amnesia as the result of trauma; for therapists and others interested in the power of the unconscious, Pandora is must reading.

A new and original AUTHOR’S NOTE decodes the sexual secrets, hidden even from the author, in the text.

Pandora is the classic story of a feisty young girl growing up in a working-class home played out against the distant yet ever-pervasive drama of World War II. Unlike most novels featuring children, Pandora is not an innocent observer of the foibles of the adults around her. Whether at home, on the street, at school, she is a full participant in the struggle for love, success, recognition, status, survival in a high-stakes society in which the decision over who gets to play skipping or who has the most colored pencils is as intense as any deal brokered in any boardroom. Here is a mirror - sometimes distorted, sometimes all too true - of the conflicts in the adult world, with the rows of seats in a classroom standing in for the houses on a street. Especially engaging is Pandora’s sly awareness, often acted out with ironic humor, of the exercise of power, its attractions and its pitfalls.
