The Absent Therapist

by Will Eaves

eBooks of the Month Modern and Classic Literary Fiction

The Absent Therapist Synopsis

Shortlisted for the Goldsmiths Prize 2014.

The Absent Therapist is a book of soundings, a jostle of voices that variously argue, remember, explain, justify, speculate and meander . . . Sons and lovers, wanderers, wonderers, stayers, leavers, readers and believers...

The Absent Therapist Press Reviews

‘The Absent Therapist is a miniature but infinite novel, and unlike anything I’ve read before. It’s just achingly good.’ – Luke Kennard

‘The whole book is like someone deeply charismatic and charming daring you not to find them insane. It’s wonderful.’ – Nicholas Lezard, Guardian
