Belfast Book Festival

BELFAST BOOK FESTIVALIn one of this year’s most exciting events, we welcome Stephen Grosz, author of The Examined Life, the best-selling non-fiction publication. Practising psychoanalyst Stephen Grosz has distilled more than 50,000 hours of conversation into 31 stories that give an insight into the everyday lives of all us, stories about the people we love, the changes we undergo and the grief we have to bear.

The stories show how we lose ourselves but also how we can find ourselves, and they also provide a self-portrait of the analyst, demonstrating how lessons learned in the consulting room can reveal as much to the analyst as to the patient.

Grosz has worked as a psychoanalyst for 25 years, teaching clinical technique at the Institute of Psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic theory at University College London.
