Reviews

"Drawing heavily on the work of Lacan, Winnicott, and Klein, Luepintz educates us as well, allowing us to look over her shoulder and see miracles happen."--Boston Globe
"Schopenhauer's Porcupines is the most affirming, original, and literate psychoanalytic work of the past thirty years."--Psychoanalytic Psychology
"I could not put Schopenhauer's Porcupines down. These stories illustrate how a master clinician uses complex and sophisticated theory with just the right light touch, so that it seems transparent to her patients and her readers."--Lewis Aron, PhD, Director, New York University
"Deborah Luepnitz brings a rare grace, wisdom, and literary imagination to these moving stories of patients and therapists talking their way toward the illumination of themselves and each other."--Lynne Sharon Schwartz, author of Disturbances in the Field
