Thirty analysts from all over the world tell a story. They invite us, the readers, to travel with their narratives to places close by and faraway, in the past, present and future, remembered, experienced, and imagined. Engaging in their stories we will recreate the worlds these authors have sketched to be unfolded within our own minds. These stories – all winners of a short story competition, called for by the Culture Committee of The International Psychoanalytic Association – are surprising, moving, and thought provoking. They linger in the mysterious space where fiction and reality merge and our own creativity starts to blossom.~ Cordelia Schmidt-Hellerau, PhD Editor and Chair of the IPA in Culture Committee
