Reviews

The best living essayist writing in English
The Martin Amis of British psychoanalysis . . . brilliantly amusing and often highly unsettling * The Times *
One of those writers whom it is a pleasure simply to hear think * Sunday Telegraph *
Reading Phillips, you may be amused, vexed, dazzled. But the one thing you will never be is bored * Observer *
Adam Phillips is that rarest of phenomena, a trained clinician who is also a sublime writer
Playfully digressive style... He is the finest living decipherer of affective life [and] the Bob Dylan of psychoanalysis * Daily Telegraph *
