May 25, 2021

Book Details

"Seven Shrinks is a masterpiece. Beautifully written with humor and humanity, it's compelling, enlightening and groundbreaking. If Sartre's Nausea was the Old Testament of depersonalization, this book is the New Testament. It's that good."Jeffrey Abugel, Founder, Initiative for Depersonalization Studies; co-author of Feeling Unreal; author of Stranger to Myself."An important contribution to the Depersonalization-Derealization Disorder literature, Seven Shrinks is the poignant and powerful story of a woman who navigated over half a century of American psychiatry in her quest to understand and be helped for a state of mind that remains all too puzzling and obscure to this day." Daphne Simeon, Associate Clinical Professor kahn School of Medicine, co-author of Feeling Unreal.

Author Description

Carol Prisant lives in Manhattan with an almost-embarrassing, but beloved, three-pound dog, and she writes. But she used to be, in no particular order: a page at a library-when there were pages and people used libraries-a model, an antiques dealer, an appraiser, and a restorer of old houses. For the past 31 years, Carol has been the New York editor of the UK magazine, The World of Interiors. She's authored three books of non-fiction: Antiques Roadshow Primer (a New York Times best-seller); Antiques Roadshow Collectibles (the companion volume); Good, Better, Best (the connoisseurship of antiques) plus Dog House (a tender memoir) Catch 26 (a novel) and Seven Shrinks (a not so tender memoir).
