Book Description

28 Nov 2013

One Way and Another is an affirmation of Adam Phillips's position as one of the most literary essayists today.

With an introduction by John Banville.

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.

'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' Observer

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

Adam Phillips is a psychoanalyst and a visiting professor in the English department at the University of York. He is the author of several previous books, all widely acclaimed, including On Kissing, Tickling and Being Bored, Going Sane and Side Effects. His most recent books are On Kindness, co-written with the historian Barbara Taylor, Missing Out: In Praise of the Unlived Life and On Balance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable 27 May 2014
By C. Grey
Format:Paperback
I find it hard to believe that a selection of some of the most brilliant essays written in the last twenty years about psychology, personality, emotion, desire, and being human in the modern world by one of our most erudite, thoughtful, and ingenious writers is not a runaway bestseller. It should be. If you are fascinated by human nature--by our contrary, self-defeating, over-complicated ways of dealing with the world, you must read this. You simply must.
