Sample text

But, as do many, she also learned from these privations: that to commit herself was to be vulner­ able, and that grief is often the price of attachment. Thus Claire Dubois learned to keep her distance and her intimate attachments to a mini­ mum— a lesson that was reinforced by the experience o f her first mar­ riage. Apart from her daughters and her books, she was committed to very little; that was how she had sustained herself. She had learned the value o f conserving herself through emotional withdrawal.

She majored in English and became a freelance editor to supply the little money she required. Then, shortly after the war ended, on impulse she returned to Paris at the invitation o f a young man whom she had met when he was studying in Montreal. He proposed marriage and Claire accepted. She had sorely missed France; living in Canada was not the same. Because of the war, her departure had been precipitous and painful and she yearned for the familiar Paris o f her youth. Her new husband offered her a sophisticated life among the city’s intellectual elite, but after only ten months he declared that he wanted a separation.

Here is the stuff of leader­ ship and in those fortunate few, where confusion never comes, leaders do emerge. But in the usual course o f events, as the crescendo builds, this expansive behavior begins to embarrass or concern colleagues and family. Strangers, once drawn in fascination to the energy and promise of hypomania, now find questionable judgment, brassy self-promotion, and excess in every action. As emotional judgment fails, increasing commitments are made, often beyond resources and reality, but the cautioning concern o f friends and family is swept aside or met with anger, sometimes even violence.
