Editorial Reviews

Review

"A dense, challenging, provocative meditation on morality and identity." ―Kirkus Reviews

Phillips is . . . a bit like an Oliver Sacks of psychoanalysis, both affable and unalarmed. - Gail Caldwell, The Boston Sunday Globe

Phillips is one of the finest prose stylists in the language, an Emerson for our time. - John Banville

Britain's foremost psychoanalytic writer. - The New Yorker

"Phillips gives an illuminating account" --Catherine Humble, The Times Literary Supplement

"[Phillips] writes playfully and suggestively on a topic that tends to get written about in the most unliterary of languages. This attractive quality in his work―its inviting (and mildly paradoxical) combination of the provocative and the ambivalent―is evident from the very beginning of his new collection, Unforbidden Pleasures."---Mark O'Connell, New York Times Book Review

“This slim volume is rich in psychological, philosophical, and literary insight.” ―Publishers Weekly

"There is a prismatic quality to Adam Phillips's thought. Pour in some Oscar Wilde or Emerson, Kafka, or, most often, Freud, and watch the British writer and psychoanalyst's refractions multiply, mesh, and twist in kaleidescopic considerations"--Chris Wallace, Interview Magazine

"Curiously addictive" --The Millions

"It is a real pleasure to glide through philosophy, literature and psychoanalysis with Adam Phillips. Through his fine essays, one finds oneself paying attention to things that repay reflection without demanding allegiance to a new set of principles." ―Michael S. Roth, The Washington Post
