Bringing together cutting edge academic research and theory on Narcissistic Personality Disorder with personal experiences and reflections on their own involvement in dysfunctional relationships, two women set out on a journey to understand the dynamics of a disorder which affects millions. This is an actual journey-a picaresque narrative-as well as a research-based exploration. The implication is that we can find different routes towards the destination of inner resolution, and that journeying itself is the essential requisite in finding peace of mind. We all lead contrasting lives, but each of us is capable, sooner or later, of falling under the spell described so effectively in Keats's poem, "La Belle Dame Sans Merci". The result is to find ourselves trapped in a monochrome inner landscape where "no birds sing". This book seeks to provide the reader with the personal and intellectual resources to bring back the song. Liv Adams is based in the United Kingdom, where she has worked for many years as a teacher, lecturer, and relationship counselor. She has an M.A. in Educational Research, and has developed award-winning programmes of study which explore classic literary texts in the context of art, sculpture, social history and recovery for survivors of psychological abuse.
