Description
"Balancing acts," writes Adam Phillips, "are entertaining because they are risky, but there are situations in which it is more dangerous to keep your balance than to lose it." In these exhilarating and casually brilliant essays, the philosopher and psychoanalyst who also gave us On Kindness examines literature, fairy tales, works of art, and case studies to reveal the paradoxes inherent in our appetites and fears. How do we know when enough is enough? Are there times when too much is just right? And why is Cinderella's biggest problem not the prince but other women? Phillips links disparate ideas and the dreamers that dreamed them into something beautiful, revelatory, and essential.
