Salley Vickers's novel opens with the arrival of a new patient in the office of therapist David McBride. The woman, Elizabeth Cruikshank, has just attempted suicide. As the two begin to explore her history, David takes an uncommon interest in her case, a curiosity driven by a terrible loss in his own life. During one long night's dialogue, patient and therapist move together through the past, each one approaching the source of the grief that has made them who they are.

Praise for The Other Side of You

"A heartbreaking novel and, yes, a love story. If you enjoy the work of Marilynne Robinson, Penelope Fitzgerald, James Salter, or Anita Brookner, you should be reading Vickers."--The Washington Post Book World

"Splendid . . .  A delicate, intelligent novel . . . intricately constructed."--Maureen Corrigan, NPR's Fresh Air

"An accomplished and absorbing novel about revelations on both sides of the therapeutic process."--The Boston Globe

"Vickers tackles two of the essential questions--how to love and how to lose--with such passion that the heart, like Elizabeth's own, cannot help but burn."--The Observer (London)

"A smart, haunting exploration of love and loss."--The New York Observer

"A former psychologist herself, Vickers brings an erudite precision and an elegant perception to her lyrically poetic testament to the vitality of love and the human capacity to both seek out and run from its ennobling grace."--Booklist
