How can reading literary fiction shed light on the way we speak ourselves within psychoanalysis? Rather than offering psychoanalytic insights into literature, Rosemary Rizq, a practicing psychologist and psychoanalytic psychotherapist, explores what literary fiction can bring to psychoanalysis. In this collection of essays, she draws on stories written by authors ranging from Henry James to Kazuo Ishiguro. By investigating the possibilities for 'fruitful encounter and dynamic exchange' between psychoanalysis and literature, Rizq sets out to offer a fresh perspective on theoretical ideas that are often presented within the psychoanalytic literature in abstract, overly technical ways.
