    Review text
    A highly original and absolutely off-the-wall novel by a writer heralded as one of '20 writers for the 21st century' by The New Yorker. Twenty psychoanalysts, riven with the usual neuroses and factional infighting, meet for dinner at a pancake house. The narrator of the novel, Tom, the flakiest member of the faculty by far, is frozen by the decision whether to have pancakes or eggs. His psyche cracks and an on-the-spot nervous breakdown ensues. Immobilized by a colleague's bear-hug he astrally projects above everyone's heads following the chaotic process of his highly-trained psychotic mind. Hysterically funny and inventive, it is the sound of psychiatry eating itself. (Kirkus UK)
