There is a compelling wit and humor to these tales, many of which reside just on the outskirts of any sense of conclusion, using the classic horror device of allowing the imagination to run wild and fill in the cracks. In stories such as Feeders and Eaters, we never learn the grisly details of exactly why the man has fallen in on himself, but there is enough horrific background to allow for creativity to connect the last few dots.

As the reader reaches the conclusion they will notice, if they are versed in Holmes lore a bit, an alternate reality that goes beyond the sci-fi elements. A few other points of interest are the short pieces written to accompany a Tori Amos tour book that each reflect a personality from various songs, and a novella dealing with Shadow, the lead character fro Gaiman's American Gods. While many of these stories are first rate, this collection does fall into a few pitfalls that comes with the territory of simply rounding up anthologized stories, as there is a sense of unevenness and a fair share of filler.

Some of the prose poems also seem to be placed in here just because and do not have the same impact as many of his stories, however Gaiman admits in the introduction that he originally did not intend for any of the poetry to be included.

There are a few others that bring about a smile, although the stories are the real meat of the collection. A few of the stories can be shrugged off as well, but do not be discouraged as there is an abundance of juicy tales. It is always fascinating for me to experience the author beyond the romanticized perception of an author, and here you can see Gaiman as the human being, writing stories in hotels rooms, airports, or in his living room as his children run about.

He puts the stories into the context of his own life, which makes them seem all the more personal. Storytelling is of major importance to Neil Gaiman. Because rendezvous typically occur via instant messaging and Facebook posts, for example, these young adults reportedly are often naive about the basic mechanics of traditional courtship.

What would you say? What words would you use? The Ecological Context: The Culture of Affluence and Costs of Wealth We turn next to the ecosystem Bronfenbrenner, : the cultural context shaping the lives of upper-middle class parents and children. Americans today have far more material luxuries than they had in the s e.

The Fragile Ordinary

Before proceeding further, we note an important caveat: it is not the possession of wealth in itself, but the overemphasis on status and wealth, that compromises well-being Luthar, In discussions that follow, we consider various mechanisms via which affluence can potentially exacerbate psychological vulnerability. To begin with, relatively high affluence offers a surfeit of choices Schwartz, b.

As Schwartz has argued, the high degree of autonomy implied by personal wealth leads many to believe that they can live exactly the kind of lives they want.

People come to expect perfection not only in their lives but also in themselves. Aside from illusions of control, another reason for enhanced vulnerability lies in the addictive potential of wealth, because of rapid habituation.

Academically, these students take every advanced placement course they possibly can, even when they are ill equipped to handle the stringent curricula Tierney, By implication, adults currently in the bottom quartile of the highest income brackets would compare themselves with those earning more than them, and thus be apt to feel discontent regardless of their own absolute wealth.

Among upwardly mobile youth, this can play out in intense competition, with each academic award or extracurricular distinction zealously coveted by all eligible, particularly at the most elite schools cf. Chase, Trade-offs of wealth versus intrinsic rewards Life patterns associated with high wealth can thwart the attainment of many critical socioemotional rewards. Tenacious commitment to high productivity leaves little time to pursue rewards such as friendships, art, and spirituality Csikszentmihalyi, ; Deiner, ; Schor, , and mental health is compromised among people strongly invested in extrinsic goals involving high status, relative to intrinsic goals such as relationships and personal growth Kasser, ; Ryan et al.

In experimental research, Quoidba, Dunn, Petrides, and Mikolajczak demonstrated that the possession of and even the reminder of high income was linked with reduced abilities to savor the small pleasures in everyday life; low savoring abilities in turn were linked to lower happiness.

There is a parallel among children, with little time for leisure pursuits simply for fun. Successes are very public, as are mistakes.

There is scant time or space to pursue the Eriksonian exploration of who they are as individuals, nurturing their unique interests, passions, and life goals. This is seen in increasing reports of already very rich and financially adroit professionals resorting to white-collar crimes for still more wealth Stewart, These students can pay well to have others do their assignments or take their examinations; if caught, they have the hefty backup parental armamentarium of power, money, and attorneys to bail them out.

The rich, therefore, are the least likely to experience the security of deep social connectedness that is available to people whose circumstances force them into mutual dependence Myers, Findings on American youth are consistent, as seen in our previously described findings on poorer adjustment among children whose own families emphasized personal success far more strongly than personal decency and kindness.

In addition, among college students, the least happy, and most depressed, were those with weak ties to family and friends, and low commitment to spending time with them Diener, We need also to explore variations by type of school, including public versus private schools, those in suburbs versus cities, and same-sex versus mixed-gender schools.

Paralleling comparisons of teens in high-achieving schools with national norms, comparable studies of young adults would be invaluable, and this could be accomplished relatively easily via anonymous surveys in colleges. As a beginning step, in large lecture courses, psychology instructors might administer well-normed instruments of distress and well-being. In pooling the data for cross-college comparisons, institutional anonymity could be maintained by using, as identifiers, rough percentile rank of each college sampled, within the U.

It would be useful to know if denizens of the most competitive institutions do report more stress or substance use, and are less satisfied with life overall, than are those of ostensibly less prestigious schools. Ultimately, it would be optimal if data on campus well-being were considered along with other institutional ranking indicators such as richness of course offerings, selectivity of admissions, and alumni donations.

This information would be invaluable for students and parents as they select among colleges, and it could also help colleges monitor, and eventually foster, positive psychological adaptation among their students in addition to scholarly excellence.

Vulnerability and protective mechanisms in resilient adaptation Aside from examining mean adjustment levels across diverse elite settings, we urgently need in-depth attention to the subgroups of youth manifesting unusually high distress, examining antecedents and sequelae of their maladjustment via prospective, longitudinal research.

Sophisticated contemporary statistical techniques e. In addition, we must explore the potential long-term costs of high disturbance across different adjustment domains, and across different developmental periods.

In resilience research, positive adaptation or risk evasion is conceptually guided and defined relative to the specific risk condition experienced Luthar et al. Refraining from excessive alcohol and drug use would be a second critical criterion acknowledging that some experimentation before departure for college is developmentally normative. A third would be levels of distress and of personal well-being that are in the normal range for teenagers in general, and a fourth would be at least average grades and extracurricular achievements.

Finally, we do not know whether there are substantive differences between youth from the upper-middle class as opposed to the most elite. Disentangling issues of race and ethnicity must be a priority.

As an alternative to school- or community-based sampling in future research, we might tap into organizations targeting high-achieving ethnic minorities, such as Jack and Jill of America, with African American membership Turnley-Robinson, , to identify similarities and differences in challenges experienced. Specific research questions warranting attention Aside from research directions already outlined, we delineate three sets of issues that warrant concerted empirical attention, based on what we have learned thus far about upper-middle class youth.

The first concerns the well-being of their primary caregivers. Such assessments should occur not only at their peak earning years but also closer to retirement. The second issue is we need more information on the quality of marriages, from the perspective of children as well as parents in affluence.

At this point, we have no idea where this metric might stand compared to national norms, but there are suggestions of trouble. The third issue is we need more attention to the socializing contexts of the school and peers. In our data collection experiences across over two decades, the climate in school buildings has varied greatly, with inner-city students being much more spontaneously friendly than the affluent youth the more exclusive the private schools, the least ebullient were the students.

With regard to peers, there are two issues on which we currently have little quantitative data. Methodological concerns Even as we suggest these various directions for researchers, we recognize that access into exclusive schools and communities can be very difficult, because of intense and often legitimate concerns about privacy Chase, ; Luthar, For those with a foot in the proverbial door, it is critical to gain the trust of the community, and that often takes time as in low-SES settings; Knitzer, Furthermore, once research assessments are completed, the knowledge must be brought back to the community, with collaborative efforts to develop preventive interventions.

In our experience, affluent parent groups, students, and teachers have all been invariably not just receptive but eager to work with data that are a scientifically rigorous, b presented with no judgments our message has been that this is about us and our children , and c with specific messages about areas that merit attention. Quantitative hypothesis testing presupposes that we know what to test Luthar et al.Having thus become "unstuck" and aware of her other, buried side, Lily feels "curiously divided, as if one part of her were drawn out t h e r e.

This, however, seems to be somewhat of a n overstatement, especially since Woolf's relationship to Freud is difficult to determine.
