About the Author

Lana Lin is Associate Professor in the School of Media Studies at The New School, New York.


Lana Lin's Freud's Jaw and Other Lost Objects is at once searingly beautiful, analytically searching and technically clarifying. The case is cancer, the main object is the breast, and through Freud, Lorde, and Sedgwick Lin elaborates a 'subjectivity of survival.' She tells a story of how these authors died in their own fashion, processing the invasiveness and strange freedom of becoming an object in illness. She also sees their modes of identification, and her own, as a kind of reparative teaching in the middle of crisis. Lin's work with her authors, plus Melanie Klein, W.R. Bion, and D. W. Winnicott, makes this book important for any scholar of affect and embodiment. But general readers of illness memoir will also find a richness of description that will allow them to feel held in the volatile, rich, and searching space illness can become. -- -Lauren Berlant * George M. Pullman Distinguished Service Professor at The University of Chicago *
Freud's Jaw and Other Lost Object sends with a riling and bold assertion of the need for us to embrace disunity and to build a 'collaborative project of survival' that allows us to prepare for an ever-more unpredictable future. * The British Society for Literature and Science *
