    " This is an amazing book that works on many levels, including a narrative that in many ways parallels the process of analysis. There are amazing discoveries in this book about the concept of evil and how honorable and kind people harbor evil tendencies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 11/7/2007

    " Um. Somewhere between John Irving and Phillip Roth - but a psych thriller -sort of. ( I guess I should add those authors now...) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer | 8/1/2007

    " I loved this book! It is sick, and twisted, and based on the author's real life. He talks about his childhood growing up, and living with his mother, and falling in love with a family member....but you have to read it to find out who it is. "
