KIRKUS REVIEW

Mr. Howard, a San Diego therapist and mystery writer, has transcribed here five cases of greater confessional interest than clinical value. Interacting here in ""the unvarnished, naked intimacy of therapy"" are Laurel, arsonist, whore and failed suicide; David who has trouble talking; Karen who failed her son because her husband was impotent and drunk; Joseph, a runaway from a Bible-belting father; and Julia who has gynecological problems from ""middleschmerz"" to infertility. She taught Mr. Howard not to ""withhold"" and one wonders whether it was a good idea.
