A Sunday Times bestsellerLonglisted for the Guardian first book awardA Radio 4 Book of the WeekThis 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.
