ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the book "The Fifty Minute Hour: A Collection of True Psychoanalytic Tales," by Robert Lindner. The subtitle of the book suggests the dilemma of the reviewer--to treat the material as literary narrative or as a scientific document in that field of medical psychology known as psychoanalysis. The five tales, all written in a vigorous and colorful literary style, are, to put it mildly, exceptional cases. In fact, several are set in a context virtually unknown to classical psychoanalysis, namely a prison setting where the patient a prisoner and the therapist-jailer are so irrevocably a part of the whole prison society that most psychoanalysts would seriously doubt whether true analysis is psychologically possible.
