...a delightful read... The authors demonstrate the value of the 'aesthetic imperative within the therapeutic space when narrative begins to fail'; they show with rich examples how therapists become prompters - prompted themselves by Shakespeare... Within this clearly written, intelligent, witty narrative, they present clinical examples along with the richness of Shakespeare's 'prompts' which can open up the therapist's imagination and deepen the emotional dialogue with the patient.
