Adam Phillips' six favorite books

Adam Phillips is a British psychotherapist and essayist. His latest book is Unforbidden Pleasures. One of the author's six favorite books, as shared at The Week magazine:
Visible Signs by Lawrence Raab

This is a book of luminous and enigmatic poems and should inspire anyone to read all of Raab's remarkable writing. Raab has, in the American grain, a generous and ironic skepticism about charmed lives and the allure of disappointment. In Raab's poetry, the ordinary is made not merely strange but palpably uncanny.
