Writing on the Moon: Stories and Poetry from the Creative Unconscious by Psychoanalysts and Others

Book Details

Reviews and Endorsements

‘In all of our published work, until now, the creativity of psychoanalysts has been limited to the expressiveness and evocativeness of our clinical descriptions and theoretical contributions. In this enchanting new volume, Bonnie Zindel gives psychoanalysts and those inspired by psychoanalysis a chance to unleash their creative energies and show a different face. It is the face of our insides turned outward, the creative unconscious reaching out, not only from our minds but also from our depths and towards our common humanity.’
— Jody Messler Davies, PhD, New York University Postdoctoral Program and the Stephen Mitchell Center for Relational Studies

Writing on the Moon is a profoundly extraordinary and compassionate compilation of poetry, art, and narratives, born out of the world and pens of psychoanalysts and creative artists. The honesty and courage of each voice, uninhibited in its candid search for reason and sense, moves us to share in the wonders of the universal bond. Bonnie Zindel has curated a deeply human book, whose democracy of shared visions is a treasure. She inspires us to move the power of words infinitely forward.’
— James Ragan, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Poetry at Charles University, Prague, and former Director of the University of Southern California Graduate Professional Writing Program

‘Inspired by powerful emotions and rich fantasies, Bonnie Zindel, a psychoanalyst and writer, has gathered a remarkable collection of creative works that pay homage to the wisdom of the unconscious as we grapple with the human condition and personal traumas.’
— Sophia Richman, PhD, author of Mended by the Muse: Creative Transformations of Trauma
