Trauma (Vintage Contemporaries)by Patrick Mcgrath
Synopses & Reviews
Charlie Weir is a man who tackles other people's demons for a living. He has seen every kind of trauma during his years as a psychiatrist in New York.Yet he hasn't found a way of resolving his own conflicts, particularly the fatal mistake that caused his wife and daughter to leave him condemning him to corrosive loneliness and restless anger.Years later, he meets a beautiful but damaged woman who promises to restore his dwindling faith in both his profession and himself. But as he realizes that she has become more of a patient than a lover, events conspire to send him reeling toward the abyss. Addictive and enthralling, Trauma is Patrick McGrath's most riveting work to date.
The bestselling author of "Asylum" and a master of contemporary psychological terror returns with a riveting novel about a psychiatrist who treats trauma patients and experiences some traumas of his own.
