Synopsis

 

The critically acclaimed novel from a master of contemporary American fiction—now available as an ebook

A suspenseful novel of ideas that explores the limitations of science, the origins of immorality, and the ultimate unknowability of the human psyche
 
Rafael Neruda is a brilliant psychiatrist renowned for his effective treatment of former child-abuse victims. Apart from his talent as an analyst, he’s deeply empathetic—he himself has been a victim of abuse. Gene Kenny is simply one more patient that Dr. Neruda has “cured” of past trauma. And then Kenny commits a terrible crime. Desperate to find out why, Dr. Neruda must shed the standards of his training, risking his own sanity in uncovering the disturbing secrets of Kenny’s former life.
 
Structured as actual case studies and steeped in the history of psychoanalysis, Dr. Neruda’s Cure for Evil is Yglesias’s most formally and intellectually ambitious novel.
 
This ebook features a new illustrated biography of Rafael Yglesias, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
