Reviews

"The Examined Life... shares the best literary qualities of Freud's most persuasive work. It is... an insightful and beautifully written book... a series of slim, piercing chapters that read like a combination of Chekhov and Oliver Sacks. [A] deeply affecting book." -- Michiko Kakutani - New York Times "Impossible to put down... it will leave you wiser about humanity than you were when you picked it up." -- Andrew Solomon, author of Far From the T "By turns edifying and moving. Grosz offers astute insights into the perplexities of everyday life." -- Trisha Andres - Financial Times "Grosz's vignettes are so brilliantly put together that they read like pieces of bare, illuminating fiction... utterly captivating." -- Robert Collins - Sunday Times "Engaging, frank,and with many penetrating insights. His short, succinct chapters have both the tension and the satisfaction of miniature detective or mystery stories." -- Michael Holroyd - The Spectator "Marvellous. After reading [Grosz's] absorbing accounts of his patients' journeys you might feel that The Examined Life ought to be given out free at birth." -- Melissa Katsoulis - The Times (UK) "[Grosz] compresses years of analysis into short chapters that feel like minimalist, suspenseful detective stories. At the end of each story, a secret is revealed; often, it's a secret which you've also kept." -- Joshua Rothman - The New Yorker "A beautifully written, affirmative, and nuanced account of a professional life in service to psychoanalytic healing... a work of exceptional grace." -- Kimberlyn Leary - Psychoanalytic Psychology
