Roger Kennedy is a psychoanalyst in private practice, a training analyst and President of the British Psychoanalytical Society. He is Consultant Psychiatrist at the Family Unit, Cassel Hospital, and author of nine previous books, including 'Psychotherapists as Expert Witnesses' (2005), and 'The Many Voices of Psychoanalysis' (2007). He is also a published poet.
'Wherever Kennedy has put himself into writing - being a subject, knowing a history - he has always done so from an astonishingly fresh perspective. In these deeply moving short stories he turns to fiction in order to represent himself (and analysts) from the same kind of winsome perspective he has used before... as a device. For make no mistake about it, Kennedy is not only of serious mind, and wonderfully devious delivery, he is also a brilliant writer. Try to put this book down once begun. I dare you!' - Christopher Bollas
