This title is a celebration of the life of Nina Coltart, who had a career in medicine and psychoanalysis and was author of bestselling titles in psychotherapy The Baby and the Bathwater and How to Survive as a Psychotherapist. The book contains a large number of contributions by specialists in the field including Michael Brearley, Susan Budd and Anthony Molino.

The book offers a long-overdue tribute to Nina Coltart (1927-1997), who was a leading figure in the Independent Group of the British Psychoanalytical Society and, indeed, one of the greatest psychoanalysts of the twentieth century. In addition to providing a comprehensive assessment of Coltart's life and work by patients, supervisees, friends, family members, and readers, the editors have compiled all of her hitherto unpublished or uncollected writings, making this book a capstone of her legacy to psychoanalysis.

Reviews and Endorsements

'Nina Coltart was a courageous analyst who insisted on speaking with a voice that was distinctively her own. Her Hour Come Round at Last comprises of several essays not included in her three collections and some previously unpublished writings, along with tributes paid to her by friends, patients, colleagues, and others. Taken together, these pieces manage to convey a sense of who Nina Coltart was in all her full and complex humanity.'
- Thomas H. Ogden, MD
