Reviews

Adult Learning and Development: Multicultural Stories simultaneously entertains and educates the reader on issues of adult development. Recognizing the role of both sociocultural and psychological factors in shaping people's lives, the editors have compiled a unique anthology of culturally diverse stories and poems that illustrate six themes of adult development: identity; the importance of work; intimacy; the family life cycle; physical development, health, and aging; and learning in adulthood. Selections feature protagonists who are African American, Asian American, Latino/a American, Native American, physically challenged, or gay and lesbian among others. Selections include "How I Got to Be Jewish" by Erica Jong and "Groom Service" by Michael Dorris.

"Reading Adult Learning and Development: Multicultural Stories was a pleasure. My appreciation for diversity and personal struggle has certainly been broadened." -- Wendy Fletcher, Canadian Journal of University Continuing Education, Vol. 26, No. 1, Spring

"The stories and poems are not only rich and diverse, as the title promises, but the editors have chosen well from authors such as Michael Dorris, Dale Brown, and Elizabeth Graver." -- Leona M. English, Interchange, Vol. 31, #4, 2000
