"In this lucid and engaging study, Barbara and Richard Almond argue that precise, authentic meanings may be found in the claim, "This is a book that changed my life." Drawing on a very wide range of literary plots and many years of clinical practice, the authors demonstrate the ways that certain stories provide models of the dynamic of healing interaction that is the goal of all psychotherapies. Never losing sight of crucial distinctions between art and life, the authors make a persuasive case for the relevance of bringing insights drawn from clinical work into the act of reading fiction, for the enrichment of both." - Diane Wood Middlebrook, Professor of English Stanford University
