Authors in Conversation: Nicola Abel-Hirsch discusses her book ‘Bion: 365 Quotes’ with Michael BrearleyBook tickets
Melanie Klein Trust
Join us for a dive into the work of Wilfred Bion, with Nicola Abel-Hirsch, author of Bion: 365 Quotes (Routledge, 2019), and psychoanalyst Michael Brearley.
Bion: 365 Quotes is a carefully curated compilation of extracts from Bion’s writings, one for each day of the year, alongside reflections and commentary by Abel-Hirsch and other leading contemporary analysts. Designed to make Bion’s wide-ranging and often enigmatic body of work more accessible, it gives readers the space to unpack his complex, multi-layered ideas, one quote at a time.
At the event Abel-Hirsch and Brearley will draw on the book’s innovative format in exploring the scope and power of Bion’s complete works. It is hoped that the conversation, like the book, will open up new avenues into Bion’s work.
