Description
Psychoanalysis works by attending to the patient's side effects, "what falls out of his pockets once he starts speaking," as British psychoanalyst Adam Phillips puts it. Undergoing psychoanalytic therapy is a leap into the dark; like opening one's heart and intellect to a powerful work of literature, it's impossible to know beforehand the ultimate effect and consequences it will have. Eloquent and observant, Phillips considers where these analytical "side effects" can lead, and explores the provocative connections between psychoanalytic treatment and enduring, transformative literature. Described variously as "Britain's foremost psychoanalytic writer" (The New Yorker), "the Martin Amis of British psychoanalysis" (Times, London), and "one of the finest prose stylists at work in the language, an Emerson of our time" (John Banville), Phillips is an original and entertaining guide to the life of the mind and how to find one's own happiness.

"This is the twelfth book by a psychoanalyst whose stylish brilliance is evident even in his titles (On Flirtation; Going Sane; On Kissing, Tickling, and Being Bored). Reading Phillips, you may be amused, vexed, dazzled. But the one thing you will never be is bored."Observer (London)
