It is a tribute to the fourteen years of work carried out together in Barcelona and Simsbury, Oxford, and an invitation to other clinicians to share in the learning experience of talking freely about the vicissitudes of their daily work. The transcriptions are presented unedited, excepting grammatical corrections, in order to preserve the atmosphere of the meetings and enable the reader to experience them fully. They cover subject matter such as anorexia, hysteria and perversion that arise in the course of clinical work and the subsequent discussions envelop the whole range of the ideas of post-Kleinian psychoanalysis. This broad spectrum is indicated by the three separate indexes that end the book - on the central ideas, on the main subjects and on diagnoses.This is an absorbing representation of the valuable work carried out over the years by these meetings and will provoke much thought and further discussion from its readers, perhaps even inspiring some to begin similar dialogues.
