"Pail Lippman is a man who loves dreams. Fortunately for his readers, he is also a wise and creative clinician who invites us to accompany him on an enchanting, informative, and challenging journey within and about our patients' dreams. Through his own reflections about the dreaming process, Lippmann reminds us of the importance of dreams to the human experience, and he returns them to a central position in the analytic process. To this end, he examines dreams from the perspectives on content and context, the character of the analyst/listener, the utility or intrusiveness of specific theories of dream interpretation, and the potential overuse of transference interpretations in our encounters with dreams. Nocturnes is not only a major contribution to contemporary psychoanalytic thought but a most intriguing and delightful read."

-Andrew Morrison, M.D., author, Shame: The Underside of Narcissism

"This imaginative and creative book is a long paean to dreams that highlights their 'unwilled freedom' and sponaneity. Lippmann tells us much about the history and nature of dreams but in a way that is personal and at times poetic. In a sense, his book embodies many of the qualities he imputes to dreams, especially their freedom and imaginative capacity. If, as E. Hartmann tells us, a critical aspect of dreams and psychoanalysis alike is 'making connections in a safe place,' then Nocturnes is a grand dream and a grand psychoanalytic excursion. For anyone interested in dreams, it will be a fascinating read."

- Morris Eagle, Ph.D., Derner Institute, Adelphi University

"Paul Lippman introduces us to our daily rich nighttime experience with originality, enthusiasm, and playfulness. Dreamers and dream interpreters alike will take his main message greatly to heart: that dreams are to be respected and appreciated rather than 'messed with.' Nocturnes is full of creative ideas not to be missed."

- Sophie Freud, LICSW, Ph.D., Professor Emerita, Simmons College School of Social Work, Boston
