Now as I flip through the book to remind myself more, I realize after I read this I picked up "Achilles in Vietnam", which the authors dicuss and mention favorably. Indeed, the bibliography, if you could see it, really shows the wide-ranging tastes and tactics the authors use to weave their tapestry. Here are a few names to give you a taste:
Arendt, Artaud, Beckett, Bion, Breton, Louis Carroll, Cervantes, Chretien de Troyes, Cocteau, Conrad, Damasio, Descartes, Duchamp, Dubois, Eliot, Faulkner, Ferenczi, John Ford, Foucault, Freud, Heisenberg, Herodotus, Homer, Huxley, Kant, Kerouac, Keynes, Lacan, La Mettrie, Loraux, Machiavelli, Mallarme, Moliere, Montaigne, Nagy, Pasolini, Plato, Poe, Ponge, Rabelais, Rousseau, Sacks, Said, Saussure, Sophocles, Sendhal, Stravinsky, Strindberg, Swedenborg, Valery, Verlaine, Vigo, Virgil, Visconti, Voltaire, Winnicott, Wittenstein, Zola, Zeami.
These are just the well recognized names--but what stands out is how the authors blend all this artistic, historical and philosophical knowledge into the personal narratives of the patients that pop up here and there. It's a moving read, recommended.
