Book Description

In a work of startling originality, Professor Brett Kahr has resurrected Donald Winnicott from the dead and has invited him for a memorable cup of tea at 87 Chester Square – his former London residence – where the two men discuss Winnicott’s life and work in compelling detail. With original drawings by Alison Bechdel, best-selling author and illustrator of Fun Home and Are You My Mother?, this ‘posthumous interview’ will be the perfect guide for students and the ideal present for colleagues.
