The story of an abusive psychoanalyst. This is an incredible piece - it is like reading a small and wonderful novel! Via Helen DeWitt.
[Addendum: Wynne Godley's obituary, which perhaps relies a bit too heavily on the LRB piece itself. An amazing line, though: "He also introduced roulette as an entertainment after certain college feasts." It seems to me on the basis of this that he never wrote the promised autobiography - but perhaps the LRB essay stands on its own as a more unusual and striking self-portrait than a full-length book could have done. Another good link: Alan Macfarlane interviews Godley in 2008.]
