Psychology and Other Stories

Psychology and Other Stories
C. P. Boyko

It’s always exciting to see an author doing something new, and C. P. Boyko’s Psychology and Other Stories is that and more. A thematic collection, the stories offer different takes, in very different voices, on matters relating to psychiatry and mental health. Many of the topics covered and characters may seem familiar – a young man investigating his sexuality, a genial but creepy psychopath, a woman involved in the self-help movement, physicians who need to heal themselves – but they’re presented here in ways that are strikingly original in terms of narrative method and style. One of the freshest and most interesting books of the year.
