The Examined Life
How We Lose and Find Ourselves
A Sunday Times bestseller
Longlisted for the Guardian first book award
A Radio 4 Book of the Week
This book is about learning to live.
In simple stories of encounter between a psychoanalyst and his patients, The Examined Life reveals how the art of insight can illuminate the most complicated, confounding and human of experiences.
These are stories about our everyday lives: they are about the people we love and the lies that we tell; the changes we bear, and the grief. Ultimately, they show us not only how we lose ourselves but how we might find ourselves too.
