Love's Executioner

Love's Executioner

Love's Executioner offers us the humane and extraordinary insight of renowned psychiatrist Irvin D. Yalom into the lives of ten of his patients - and through them into the minds of us allWhy was Saul tormented by three unopened letters from Stockholm? What made Thelma spend her whole life raking over a long-past love affair? How did Carlos's macho fantasies help him deal with terminal cancer?In this engrossing book, Irvin Yalom gives detailed and deeply affecting accounts of his work with these and seven other patients.
