Check out the recent issue of Stay Free!, subtitled the Psychology Issue. There are interviews with Edward Valenstein on the history of lobotomies (why does my library not carry his books? I want to read more!), Laurence Kirmayer on mental illness across cultures, and Edward Shorter on hysteria and psychosomatic illnesses. There’s a reader write-in column is on this last topic. (My only experience with that was bizarre; after my first kiss I was unable to eat for three days. And I can eat a full meal when sick with the flu!). But the magazine is worth the $4 for the anecdote of the suicidal circus octopus.
