3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Peter V. Owens on November 20, 2001
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This books leaps quickly out of the starting gates as psychotherapist Pat discovers that her husband is a closet transvestite with a wardrobe and underwear collection that puts her own to shame. This sets off a deepening obsessive-compulsive crisis in her own life as her clinic faces closure by faceless bureaucrats, and the orderly world of psychotherapy yields to a chaos only the most befuddled patient really understands. In fact, the real star of Monday at the Charm is patient Judy Jones, a wildly dysfunctional mess whose life is such utter chaos that only she really comprehends the damaged lives of the Charm staff. With her quirky, raw compassion and bemused tolerance, the hopeless Judy offers the most sane reactions to the crumbling personal and professional lives of a small world gone gently around the bend. Johns Hopkins Psychiatrist Dinah Miller writes with wonderful energy in this compact, fun novel populated by strangely comic characters who gain our sympathy as they unravel, hit bottom, and react in very personal ways to circumstances beyond their control and comprehension. Miller's first novel offers a most promising peek into the often tiresomely humorless therapeutic world so seldom revealed with its vulnerabilities showing. --Peter Owens, author of Rips
