Featured book for October

Couch_Fiction

Story by Philippa Perry

“Ever wanted an insight into counselling?  Or wished you could be a ‘fly-on-the-wall’ in a psychotherapy session?  Couch Fiction allows you to peep through the keyhole of the therapy room door and, more than that, read the minds of the protagonists…

Based on a case study of Pat (our sandal-wearing, cat-loving psychotherapist) and her new client, James (an ambitious barrister with a potentially harmful habit he can’t stop), this graphic novel follows the anxieties, frustrations, mind-wanderings and break-throughs of each, through a year of therapy sessions together. Beautifully illustrated and accompanied by succinct and illuminating footnotes, this book offers a witty and thought-provoking exploration of the therapeutic journey, considering a range of skills, insights and techniques along the way.”

“Louis Pasteur, Artist”
Joe Gal, PhD
Professor Emeritus, Department of Pathology
University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus

Louis Pasteur is admired around the world as a benefactor of humanity for his discoveries and inventions in microbiology and infectious diseases. Much less  well known is that he was a talented artist who as a teenager created first-rate images, mostly portraits of family, friends, and town notables, in pastel, charcoal, pencil, and lithography. He abandoned work as an artist at age 20 but maintained close connections to the world of art and artists for the rest of his life.
