A woman who works at a mental health clinic at times encounters the scorn and derision of her colleagues. A psychotherapist herself, she endeavours to emerge from a protracted psychological crisis.
Open Line by Tatiana Averoff delicately delineates a troubled inner life that is compelled to journey down many unpredictable paths before managing to strike some kind of balance.
This novel highlights the connection between childhood trauma and adulthood, but never draws facile conclusions or forces the story to fit preconceived notions. It explores what happens when someone, through the process of attempting to deal with the psychological problems of others, becomes aware that they have a serious psychological problem of their own.
Averoff dramatizes the way in which the individual comes into conflict and communication with others in an ongoing process of response and exchange. Open Line is a realistic portrayal of contemporary psychotherapy that demystifies many common stereotypes.
