While accommodating playfulness and even a bit of audacity, both psychoanalysis and poetry deeply respect formality of structure, nuance of affect, and the multifaceted resonance of the spoken word. Twinship of the analytic and poetic discourse is also evident in the parallels between a fumbling pause in free associations and an aching line break in a poem, a telling parapraxis and an inspired metaphor, an acknowledgment of the repressed via its negation and the irony of simultaneous hiding and revealing in verse, and so on. To put it bluntly, psychoanalysis is two-person poetry and poetry one-person psychoanalysis. No where is this juxtaposition more apparent than in this book of poems by psychoanalysts. The first ever collection of its sort. Contributors: Salman Akhtar, Gerald Garguilo, Forrest Hamer, Sheri Hunt, Alice Jones, Eugene Mahon, Rebecca Meredith, Arlene Kramer Richards, Arnold Richards, Elise Sanders.

"Probing the alcoves of memory and desire, looking for 'the primal secret' that is 'so yearned for, yet so feared, ' celebrating cosmic mystery and the mysteries of relationship and of 'the self within', Between Hours is a book too wise to propose answers to our hardest questions. Instead, this collection of poetry by ten psychoanalysts reminds us subtly and powerfully that our very questioning, as Salman Akhtar says, 'enlarges us'."--Alicia Ostriker, author of the Book of Seventy-Probing the alcoves of memory and desire, looking for 'the primal secret' that is 'so yearned for, yet so feared, ' celebrating cosmic mystery and the mysteries of relationship and of 'the self within', Between Hours is a book too wise to propose answers to our hardest questions.
