One Way and Another is an affirmation of Adam Phillips' position as one of the most literary essayists today. Throughout his brilliant career, Adam Phillips has lent a new and incisive dimension to the art of the literary essay, and in so doing revived the form for audiences of the new millennium. Collected here are nineteen pieces that have best defined his thinking - including 'On Tickling', 'On Being Bored' and 'Clutter: A Case History' - along with a selection of new writings and an introduction by Man Booker Prize winner John Banville.

Reviews and Endorsements

'Though his territory is complication, he reports back from his travels in the simplest of words. He is perhaps single-handedly continuing the tradition of the world's best essayists'.
- The Observer

'Phillips radiates infectious charm. The brew of gaiety, compassion, exuberance and idealism is heady and disarming.'
The Sunday Times

'"Phillipsian" would evoke a vivid, paradoxical style that led you to think that you had picked up an idea by the head, only to find you were holding it by the tail.'
- Lisa Appignanesi in The Guardian
