It is December now. 
We have had a very busy few months moving around and we are greatly looking forward to a little more time at the store. 
You know one of our esteemed authors was in the store today and they were looking for the existential psychotherapy section. That one is a nifty section I must say. It is on the east wall near the back. To the right of psychoanalysis. 
Remember I mentioned Monkey's Paw that one time? Well how about I mention a brand new bookstore out west for those of you that live in or near Bridge City? Ready? Here it is: Peryton Books
We have a number of enrapturing events until the middle of the month. Once that quieter time hits we will be busy organizing and cleaning in between games of Crokinole and Harbord street shinny. 
Something worth noting will be our closures over the snowy season. They are mentioned below but will also be posted on our website.
So, it is our great pleasure to wish you all a happy and safe December. May January bring you what you are after as well as well as what you were not aware you were after.

Mind Over Terror: 3 Weeks, 2 Cities, 1 Mission

This is the book the author hoped he would never have to write.

Psychoanalysis, History, and Radical Ethics
Donna M. Orange

Psychoanalysis, History, and Radical Ethics: Learning to Hear explores the importance of listening, being able to speak, and those who are silenced, from a psychoanalytic perspective. In particular, it focuses on those voices silenced either collectively or individually by trauma, culture, discrimination and persecution, and even by the history of psychoanalysis. Drawing on lessons from philosophy and history as well as clinical vignettes, this book provides a comprehensive guide to understanding the role of trauma in creating silence, and the importance for psychoanalysts of learning to hear those silenced voices.

Perfectly Hidden Depression: How to Break Free from Perfectionism, Find Self-Acceptance, and Live a Happier Life
Margaret Robinson Rutherford

It’s time to break free from the perfectionism that drives your depression.

Many of us were raised to believe that mental illness of any kind is a weakness, or worse—a sign of failure. And if you’re a perfectionist, a people pleaser, or judge yourself harshly, admitting that you have a real problem with depression can be extremely difficult. You may not have admitted it to yourself. [More. . .]

Pierre Bruno

Unlike previous books, Bruno provides a detailed history of Lacan’s reading of Marx and surveys his references to Marx in both his writings and seminars. Examining Lacan’s key argument that Marx "invented the symptom", Bruno shows how Lacan went on to criticize Marx and contrasts Marx’s concept of surplus-value with Lacan’s surplus-enjoyment. [More. . .]

Anxiety: Calming the Chaos Within
Gail Barrett

Gail barrett has written a book on anxiety for everyone. Have you already tackled workbooks to your limit? Feeling like reading about anxiety and having the exercises sneak up on you before deciding whether or not you would like to do any exercises? Well, Barrett's book is for you. On top of all of this it is a scrumptious read on its topic. One could be read it cover to cover just for interest's sake. Anxiety is, very sadly, a growth industry and there are so many effective ways to write and learn about it. Anxiety: Calming the Chaos Within is a good standalone as well as a very acceptable conduit between some of the more full-on workbooks and resources available and something like Joseph Ledoux's Anxiety: Using the Brain to Understand and Treat Fear and Anxiety. Barrett's personal accounts combined with a wealth of knowledge provided me with a delightful armchair of syntax leading to deeper insight into my own occurrences of overwhelm. Give this one a go!

Anything can be a stocking stuffer provided the stocking is big enough.
