Writers on Therapy
edited by Jason Shindler
William Morrow, 2000. 220 pages.
I enjoy personal essays. This is a book of personal essays
by talented authors springing from their different experiences with psychotherapy.
They go all over the place with it. Some of the essays are light
and humorous, some are about heavy burdens lifted.
Writers are a quirky lot, and the topic of therapy brings up many
of the quirks. I found it amazing the many different directions
where they led my thinking, all from the same starting point. I
enjoyed this book and found it thought-provoking. I wouldn’t necessarily
recommend going out and buying it (unless you’re particularly interested
in the topic), but if you can find it at your library, you’ll find some
fun and interesting reading.
