Erica Kates (au); Sheldon Roth (ad). There is nothing more quintessentially Amer., & quintessentially of the 20th cent., than therapy. This collection of contemporary Amer. short stories provides 19 windows onto this intensely private experience, from the heroine in Lorrie Moore’s “If Only Bert Were Here,” who cannot recover from the death of her cat, to the couple in John Updike’s “The Fairy Godfathers,” whose passion requires the presence of their respective therapists, to the protagonist of Stephen McCauley’s “The Whole Truth,” who can barely keep straight the lies she tells her therapist. Other writers include: Frank Conroy, Francine Prose, Martha McPhee, Amy Bloom, Charles Baxter, Peter Collier, Rebecca Lee, Lawrence Block, Lynne Sharon Schwartz, & Donald Barthelme.
