Only a Slender Internal Connection
Available on backorder
Follow your dreams
Three times a week, the patient blocks the sun coming in through the window, turns on a string of holiday lights, and lies on her bed in a dark, red room. She begins each session by recounting the dreams of the preceding days. The patient, in concert with her analyst on the other end of the line, follows where her speech takes her.
Each story in Only a Slender Internal Connection interprets a fifty minute psychoanalytic session via its dreams, with words faithfully reconstructed from notes.
