Attention Seeking: Adam Phillips and Devorah Baum

Fully Booked
London Review Bookshop

Practising psychotherapist, essayist and regular contributor to the LRB Adam Phillips has, through many books, articles, reviews and lectures, established himself as one of our most profound thinkers on the human condition, his insights grounded in Freudian psychoanalysis but ranging far and wide beyond it. His latest book Attention Seeking (Penguin) may be small, but it’s determined to make itself heard. In it he looks into what interests us and why, as well as into what draws our attention, who is drawing our attention to it, and how.

He will be in conversation with Devorah Baum, author of Feeling Jewish and The Jewish Joke.
