No one understood what Barbara was going through and worse, no one really seemed to care. Friends, family and co-workers could not fathom what, if anything, she had to be so miserable about it the first place. Barbara was a learned woman surrounded by wealth, natural beauty and to all appearances, married to the love of her life; nobody, least of all Barbara, could understand why she felt so horribly and unequivocally alone.
Therapy: A Novel is insightful and perceptive; a genuine work of literary fiction that examines the patient-therapist relationship, self-worth, body dimorphic disorder, self-esteem, mental illness and a legacy of physical, emotional and verbal abuse. Narrated in the first person, Barbara tells much of her life's story with a surprising amount of emotional detachment; evidence that her perceptions and her grip on reality are tenuous at best. This story is a fairly easy read, despite its weighty subject matter. The reader will quickly be engrossed in Barbara's story, feel empathy toward her and be surprised by how well she bore-up under her life's misfortunes and troubles. Therapy: A Novel is not a self-help book; don't be confused. If you are in need of genuine, therapeutic advice or treatment, this novel may not be for you. In short, if you have been looking for a stirring and unique new book to read, we highly recommend that you pick up a copy of Therapy: A Novel.
