Therapy can be brutal - these poems show the clash between what you hope you will accomplish, and what you truly have to accomplish in therapy. Amazing poems, so honest, and spare but lush at the same time.

What an excellent book of poetry~just lovely. I've been reading and re-reading this for a few years now. I love "hearing" each poem from a slightly different place & grasping something new from it each time.

Rating: 3 1/2I bought this without knowing the whole collection is about therapy, or the relationship between Ackerman and her therapist. It's over 140 pages, and gets a bit redundant, due to the narrowness of the topic. But she does a good job of approaching the subject from different angles. A few pieces worth noting:"High Above the Impedimenta of the City"'Rorschach: Magritte's Painting "The Therapist"""A Little Grammar Is a Dangerous Thing""Rachmaninoff's Psychiatrist"the land of pain's nimb [...]

Kind of dumb. Noetty dumb. While Ackerman has the ability to amaze with her vocabulary and the way she knots words together, to take such a private moment, make "sensualist" poetry out of it, and then bind it for everyone to read? It reeks of, "I couldn't think of anything else to write, so this is the best I could do." Stick with "A Natural History of the Senses" or some of the other non-fiction she's churned out.

I am glad I read these poems, but I just don't always seem to agree with Ackerman's ideas of spirituality, which bothered me a bit. But it is clear that there is talent within these pages and I did really enjoy several of the poems in here, particularly 'When You Answer the Phone' and 'A Little Grammar is A Dangerous Thing.'

this contains stuff of interest for those who want to hear about the intensity and emotional depth of the therapeutic relationship from the patient's side, from someone who is both deep and very good at putting words together. the poetry itself, though, didn't seem terribly interesting to me.

Somehow disappoint after "Natural History of the Senses". The poems seemed to lack the sensuality of her descriptions and insights into the senses

I like:Between the CreasesOf a FeatherThe PathOn Second Thought

I have no words to say how FANTASTIC this book is---what an incredible and gorgeous collection of poems. This is easily a new favorite. HIGHLY recommended.

Poetic psychoanalysis can you argue that?

"even my fingerprints ache"

Good book about the therapy process and the client-therapist relationship.

These poems are essentially a journal of her psychotherapy. As poetry I didn't find myself wanting to reread them--not a plus.
