Reviews and Endorsements

Bollas invites the fascinating possibility that psychoanalysis is akin to poetic conjecture
Why am I here
What are we doing in this room together
I don’t know I don’t know
Could it be
Why me
Mama
Papa
This funny sad book wanders through the everyday and reflects on the nothingness of being
Disappearing down the drains - the uncanny fear of the loss of self. Terror
Why me
Why me
Anish Kapoor


Christopher Bollas brings a psychoanalytic and absurdist mind to ordinary conversations, lifting them into a form akin to theatre. Funny, larky, and existential, Bollas turns the private inside out and these exchanges voice the surprising, yet recognisable, inner feelings of our contemporary moment.
