Love's Executioner

Love's Executioner

& Other Tales of Psychotherapy

This collection of ten absorbing tales by master psychotherapist Irvin D. Yalom uncovers the mysteries, frustrations, pathos, and humor at the heart of the therapeutic encounter.

First published in 1989, this New York Times bestselling collection of ten tales has become a classic. Yalom not only gives us a rare and enthralling glimpse into his patients’ personal desires and motivations, but also tells his own story as he struggles to reconcile his all-too-human response with his sensibility as a psychiatrist. Now with a new afterword, Love’s Exectioner promises to inspire generations of readers to come.
