A beautiful and thoughtful collection of essays on reading, writing and learning, Writing and Psychoanalysis grows out of a colloquium. The results are wondrous and impact on the reader at many different levels. In the act of writing, we all discover something about what we know previously unknown to us, and we learn more about our inner world that we knew before we set pen to paper (or hand to computer). Patrick Mahony goes so far as to argue that Freud's self-analysis was essentially a "writing cure."

Writing in Psychoanalysis is the first volume in the projected Monograph Series, Psychoanalytic Issues, the Rivista di Psicoanalisi (the Journal of the Italian Psychoanalytical Society) is undertaking in conjunction with Karnac Books. This series constitutes a major effort to bring about a dialogue among psychoanalysts who while ultimately bound together by a common psychoanalytic heritage nonetheless are separated in their thinking by different idioms, whether linguistic or theoretical. While featuring writers of very different idioms, this series will also present a venue to make some important Italian voices known to English speaking analysts.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"I found this volume particularly enjoyable to read, filled as it is with interesting revelations about the processes of writing, communicating, and reading. Though directed toward the act of writing and its psychology, the volume is also rich in keen insights on the way the mind is organized, the psychic function of solitude, and the problems of interpersonal communication. A 'must' read for aspiring writers, for editors and members of editorial boards, it is also a 'should' read for clinicians and for readers of psychoanalytic works."

- Ethel Spector Person, M.D., Columbia University Psychoanalytic Center for Training and Research
