Empathy

by Sarah Schulman - £13.99  Arsenal Pulp Press (2006)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781551522012 | ISBN 10: 1551522012

Provocative, moving and daring, this new edition of a novel first published in 1992 is a prescient and shattering book about finding personal truths in an age of cynicism and lies. Anna O. is a loner in New York haunted by a past female lover who refused to acknowledge their relationship. Doc is a post-Freudian psychiatrist who hands out business cards to likely neurotics on street corners and is looking for his own personal fulfillment. They befriend each other in the netherworld of the Lower East Side, two unlikely people drawn together by their confusion about and empathy for the world around them and each other. This beautifully written novel is about the fluidity of desire, and how those of us damaged by love can still be transformed by it.
 
Part of the Little Sister's Classics series of reprints, this includes a new afterword by the author, supplementary material about the book, and an introduction by writer Kevin Killian.

"Breaks into new territory ... as fun and nervy and outrageous as ever"
(Kate Millett)
"Insightful ... funny ... makes provocative statements about gender roles, sexual orientation, AIDS, homelessness, drugs, and the therapeutic value of an attentive ear."
(Publisher's Weekly)
