"Stories We Tell Ourselves is a marvelous inquiry into what dreams can tell us about ourselves--in short, that some vast part of our experience, cut off from us and made unconscious, can be plumbed by anyone who is curious and persistent enough to pursue the enigmatic language of dreams."--Annie Rogers, author, The Unsayable: The Hidden Language of Trauma
