Filled with clinical vignettes that bring her writings to life, this book cogently addresses such disparate topics as diagnosis, the superego, and silence, as well as the importance of spirituality. The justly famous title essay, which opens the book, is “a close analysis of an apparently hopeless, elderly patient, Coltart’s dramatic intervention, and the remarkable results of the case.”
