Six weeks after the difficult and prolonged birth of his first-born son, Casper 'Cap' Kaplan returns to his Colorado therapy practice. His clients's problems have intensified during his leave, making his job challenging beyond his expectations. Most notable among them is Julian, an obsessive twenty-year-old epileptic raised by a concentration-camp-survivor mother. And then there's Maureen Kels, a professor of environmental economics with an endless repetoire of tactics for getting under Cap's skin, from sporting dragon-lady attire to making lewd sexual remarks to pointing out Cap's most intimate weaknesses.

What People are Saying About This
"Both smart and wise, audicious and moving, a book that's easy to swallow but hurts once its lodged deep inside."
"A supreme literary gift, a novel that triumps spiritually, intellectually, humanly."
"To accord Steven Schwartz the status of 'working novelist' is to short change his amazing achievement....The Therapy is a novel that wrestles with the big questions, and wins."
