Narcissus, from Greek mythology, by J.W. Waterhouse

Not all the people we choose to join in relationships are good at it.  Being in relationships, that is. 

Ashland author Sierra Faith notices in particular that narcissists make poor relationship partners. 

She writes of the initial attraction and the predictable problems in Absolutely Adored: Stop Choosing Narcissistic Men and Finally Be a Well-Loved Woman

It contains plenty of advice for recognizing risky relationship partners, and steering clear.  The author joins us for a chat, prior to a reading at Bloomsbury Books in Ashland.
