Staff Reviews

Lori is a therapist in L.A., living with her young son and seeing a man she calls "Boyfriend," when things start to fall apart. Boyfriend breaks up with her after 2 years together, for seemingly ridiculous reasons, sending Lori into a crisis. She starts seeing a therapist herself, a long time professional named Wendell whose methods Lori finds puzzling at first.  The book is divided between sessions with Wendell, and sessions with her own clients, who include a self-absorbed TV producer, a young woman recently diagnosed with a terminal illness, and a woman in her late sixties who has determined to end her life if things haven't improved by the end of a year. Gottlieb weaves these stories together with skill and humor, bringing us with her every step of the journey, and in the process reveals our own selves to us.

“I was thinking maybe I should talk to someone, and then there was this book. Gottlieb has written a compassionate and entertaining memoir from both sides of the couch, so to speak. She tells the stories of four patients whose lives the reader comes to care deeply about while she herself goes into therapy. Physician, heal thyself? No. Human being, be honest with thyself and do something really difficult. Gottlieb is as fine a writer as she is a storyteller. I was sad our sessions had to end.”
