A Novel Psychiatrist


Tony Blair's former spin doctor Alastair Campbell is to publish his first novel. 'All in the Mind' is described as "the compelling story of a psychiatrist, his patients and family, and the pressures they bring to bear upon each other".
Campbell, who has previously spoken about his struggles with depression, said that although he has himself required psychiatric treatment "this is a book by me, not about me". I look forward to reading it with interest.

I've been searching for novels with a psychiatrist as protagonist for a reading list to include my own novel, "I. Joseph Kellerman."

Dr. Kellerman, who hasn't left his Boston rowhouse in more than four years, is loosely based on a real man, a Holocaust survivor and controversial character himself, who practiced in New York City until his death in the early 90's.
