Anne Cathrine Bomann: Agathe, 2019
An aging and unengaged psychiatrist counts the days until his retirement, while humming well-rehearsed comments to his patients on the therapeutic divan. The burned-out psychiatrist is about to fall, as he wakes up from his anxiety about not being able to make a difference, and in particular heal a very unique person in whom he sees himself. When, after a long life in which you have tried to avoid, you still need to mean something to others, and you have an endless desire to reach out and approach another – and thus yourself? Read the book if you are interested in the psychological interaction in the meeting between people and in this fantastic and fine, small psychological narrative seek inspiration in life’s big questions as we see and mirror each other.
