Schopenhauer's Porcupines
By

Rating
"Deborah Anna Luepnitz has written a masterpiece about the living, breathing relationship of psychotherapist and client."--Linda Austin, M.D., author of What's Holding You Back. Each generation of therapists can boast of only a few writers like Deborah Luepnitz, whose sympathy and wit shine through a fine, luminous prose. In Schopenhauer's Porcupines she recounts five true stories from her practice, stories of patients who range from the super-rich to the homeless and who grapple with panic attacks, psychosomatic illness, marital despair, and sexual recklessness. Intimate, original, and triumphantly funny, Schopenhauer's Porcupines goes further than any other book in unveiling the secrets of "how talking helps."

Reviews

"Luepnitz's lucid writing makes the five case studies in this volume read like short stories, rich with sympathetic characters and vivid situations.... In her writing, [Luepnitz] allows us to look over her shoulder and see...miracles happen." Boston Globe
