Book: Lying on the Couch / Irvin D. Yalom

More info at Amazon

I haven’t read a page-turner novel in a long time, and this one was supremely satisfying. I’ve read some of Jung’s case histories with fascination, but it never occurred to me how a powerful a ficional device psychoanalysis could be. Combined with a good story and enheartening values, I’m impressed enough with this work to forgive a few cliches and some reveling in the power of omnicient narration. For a novel with substance, this is also very entertaining stuff.
