In Nicola Redhouse's Unlike the Heart, theoretical questions of psyche and soma are not remote but urgent concerns, intimately bound to her own family's story and the terrible anxiety she experienced after the births of her children. Intelligent, lucid and knowledgeable, the book itself may be said to embody the discipline of neuropsychoanalysis -- Siri Hustvedt Siri Hustvedt
