The Hands of Gravity and Chance is a spell-binding story in which parents find themselves promising and then rescinding what they do not have to give. The story opens with the fall of a thirteen-year-old girl down the stairs of the family house, an event that generates fault lines that spread both forward and backward in time, releasing an explosive energy of love and fear, bitterness and remorse.

About the Author:

Thomas Ogden, MD, published his debut novel, The Parts Left Out, in 2014. He has also published twelve books of essays on the theory and practice of psychoanalysis, and on the writings of Frost, Borges, Kafka, and others. His most recent works of non-fiction include The Analyst’s Ear and the Critic’s Eye: Rethinking Psychoanalysis and Literature; Creative Readings: Essays on Seminal Analytic Works; Rediscovering Psychoanalysis; and This Art of Psychoanalysis: Dreaming Undreamt Dreams and Interrupted Cries. . His work has been translated into twenty languages.

Dr Ogden was awarded the 2012 Sigourney Award for his “contributions to the field of psychoanalysis”; the 2010 Haskell Norman Prize for “outstanding achievement as a psychoanalytic clinician, teacher and theoretician”; and the 2004 International Journal of Psychoanalysis Award for “The Most Important Paper of the Year.” He practices psychoanalysis in San Francisco, where he teaches both psychoanalysis and creative writing.
