Product Details

Praise

‘Compulsively readable.’ –Francine Prose, O: The Oprah Magazine

‘[S]trangely profound. . . . [an author] with a great eye for detail.’ –Joshua Wolf Shenk, The Washington Post

‘[E]xcellent in the way H.D.’s [Tribute to Freud] is: it illuminates the intricate, murky relationship between therapy and real life. . . . Friedman is at her best when relaying the delicately nuanced exchanges that occur between the

patient and therapist. . . . The book could, like Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird, develop a cult following.’ –Publishers Weekly

‘The memoir is sometimes dismissed as a genre for the self-absorbed and self-pitying, yet The Thief of Happiness is neither. . . . An impressive accomplishment and a fine addition to the existing literature on therapy.’ –Carmela Ciuraru, Forward
