When I wrote a story about narcissistic parenting earlier this year, inspired by the furor over Galia Oz’s memoir about life with her allegedly abusive father Amos Oz, I knew the story would reverberate. But I had no idea quite how much.

There were messages from friends and acquaintances I hadn’t realized had grown up in such homes, including some who wished they could share their story, but couldn’t out of fear of hurting their parents. There were also many readers who emailed to thank me for the story and discussing their own experiences.
