Beginning with early 20th-century figures–among them Carl Jung, Isak Dinesen, and Georgia O’Keeffe–who found in "the primitive" a medium for soul-searching and personal change, Torgovnivk probes how the return to the primitive has signaled a quest to transcend the limitations of the body in a variety of contemporary practices, from genital piercing to New Age rites to the mythopoetic men’s movement. Illustrations. 272 pp. Author tour. 10,000 print.
