Reviews and Endorsements

‘This powerful book is built around five stimulating chapters, through which we meet a very lively André Green addressing a British audience in a generous and free way, as he guides us through his deep understanding of Winnicott and its influence on his own work. Thanks to Jan Abram, who edited André Green’s lectures, this book is as much about “Playing with Green” as it is about “Playing with Winnicott”. In her very welcome new introduction to this second edition, Abram highlights Green’s creativity, his major concepts, and his intimate knowledge of Winnicott. She also introduces her own line of thought, which is an added bonus.’
— Nathalie Zilkha, training and supervising psychoanalyst in the Swiss Psychoanalytic Society

‘André Green emphasises in these exchanges his interest in Winnicott’s works and their influence on his thoughts on absence, loss, and non-existence. This new English edition of this book will continue to contribute to a reciprocal enrichment between French and British psychoanalysts.’
— Alain Gibeault, training and supervising analyst of the Paris
Psychoanalytical Society

‘This book is a wonderful reflection of André Green and his work as an analyst, a theoretician, and a Winnicottian. Jan Abram captures Green’s capacity to “play with reality” despite his dour demeanour of “looking over his glasses without a smile”. We thank her for this human portrait of a passionate, often controversial, analyst who dedicated his life to understanding the unconscious psyche.’
— Kathleen Kelley-Lainé, member of the Société Psychanalytique de Paris, and author of Peter Pan: The Story of Lost Childhood
