"It is the Man Booker prize-winning novelist’s agenda that drives the absorbing discussions of this book. Kurtz’s pieces are replies to Coetzee’s questions, and as such are insightful for both [psychoanalysis and novel-writing]" (Gerard Woodward Independent)
"Coetzee and Kurtz range freely across space and time, from ancient spells of bewitchment to the "confessions" of celebrities in magazines. Their arguments have a meditative quality, challenging, and helpfully open-ended" (Lewis Jones Newsweek Europe)
"Coetzee’s writing is characteristically spare and penetrating… Kurtz proves both a lucid expositor and an evocative literary stylist, bringing psychoanalytic ideas and practices to life with rare precision and immediacy" (Josh Cohen Literary Review)
"[Arabella Kurtz] writes with wonderful eloquence about imagination and the self, parrying Coetzee's relentless unmasking with her gently intelligent demurral" (Tessa Hadley Guardian)
"Coetzee is an exceptionally clear thinker, and his gift for expressing complex concepts through considered, precise prose is impressive" (Totally Dublin)
A fascinating dialogue on the human inclination to make up stories between a Nobel Prize-winning writer and a psychotherapist.See all Product description
