In this short book, Catherine Millot offers a richly evocative reflection on her life as analysand and lover of the greatest psychoanalyst since Freud. Dwelling on their time together in Paris and in Lacan s country house in Guitrancourt, as well as describing their many travels, Millot provides unparalleled insights into Lacan s character as well as his encounters with other major European thinkers of the time. She also sheds new light on key themes, including Lacan s obsession with the Borromean knot and gradual descent into silence, all enlivened by her unique perspective. This beautifully written memoir, awarded the Andre Gide Prize for Literature, will be of interest to anyone wishing to understand the life and character of a thinker who continues to exert a wide influence in psychoanalysis and across the humanities and social sciences.
