An Italian psychoanalyst and raconteur reflects insightfully on life and the common experiences that make us human.

"The brief pieces collected in this volume are as much short stories as they are essays as they are psychoanalytic studies. In every chapter, the stage is set for consideration of large matters--the nature of passion, the crucial role of illusion and disillusion in life, what constitutes heroism--but always in relation to a very particular story from the authors life, and always a story told with the kind of charming humor that points us toward tolerance for and appreciation of the richness of humanity. There is a lovely and beguiling intimacy about Stefano Bologninis prose, so that psychoanalytic concepts are never intrusions of jargon, but rather ideas to conjure with, creatively." --From the Foreword by Owen Renik

IN THESE TEN ESSAYS, Stefano Bolognini tells colorful stories from his life, from encounters with a giant Caucasian sheepdog and a martial arts master to a wandering journey through a remote Italian village, and draws out the meaning of these experiences for himself and his readers. Showcasing Bologninis gift for storytelling and his remarkable insight, Like Wind, Like Wave marks a welcome return to psychoanalytic writing as a subjective art.
