On the Couch eavesdrops on the therapeutic process as some of America's best-known writers take the reader into the charged and sacred space between patient and analyst. On the Couch provides nineteen separate windows into this intensely private experience. From the heroine in Lorrie Moore's "If Only Bert Were Here," who can, hilariously, barely keep straight the twisted lies she tells her therapist about her romantic entanglements, these stories examine not only therapy, but the problems of love, loss, lies, dependence, and limitations.

    The most captivating entry: Keller's Therapy...a sort of cross between The Sopranos and Analyze This -- what happens when a hit man goes into therapy without telling his therapist what his real occupation is. It won the Edgar award (given to mystery writers) in 1994 for Best Short Story.

    Easy forgettable, but entertaining at the moment. Good to possess to read multiple times after you forget what you read.

    Humorous, disturbing, but not for the impatient readers who like action. They are short stories, but some are more appealing than others.
