The Examined Life

How We Lose and Find Ourselves

A Sunday Times bestseller

Longlisted for the Guardian first book award

A Radio 4 Book of the Week

This book is about learning to live.

In simple stories of encounter between a psychoanalyst and his patients, The Examined Life reveals how the art of insight can illuminate the most complicated, confounding and human of experiences.

These are stories about our everyday lives: they are about the people we love and the lies that we tell; the changes we bear, and the grief. Ultimately, they show us not only how we lose ourselves but how we might find ourselves too.

"This moving book of patient portraits by the psychoanalyst Stephen Grosz will make the reader think of Freud’s keenly observed and literary-minded case studies. Writing with sympathy and insight, Mr Grosz distils 25 years of work into a series of slim, piercing chapters that read like a combination of Chekhov and Oliver Sacks"
Stephen Grosz
"Grosz's vignettes are so brilliantly put together that they read like pieces of bare, illuminating fiction... utterly captivating" -- Robert Collins Sunday Times "Marvellous. After reading [Grosz's] absorbing accounts of his patients' journeys you might feel that The Examined Life ought to be given out free at birth" -- Melissa Katsoulis The Times "Crystal-clear and completely magical.The Examined Life is a book full of troubles, but also of wonders" -- Craig Brown Mail on Sunday "Engaging, frank, and with many penetrating insights. His short, succinct chapters have both the tension and the satisfaction of miniature detective or mystery stories" -- Michael Holroyd The Spectator "By turns edifying and moving.Grosz offers astute insights into the perplexities of everyday life" -- Trisha Andres Financial Times
