Editorial Reviews

Sunday Times of London
The many and varied essays in Adam Phillips's book effervesce with interest.
New York Observer
When I imagine Adam Phillips writing these essays, I see him in a giant sandbox of ideas, happily pouring poetry and case history from one colored plastic pail into another.... The essays' joy is infectious.
