Virgin Kisses
 

Authored by Gloria Nagy
Edition: 3

‘My name is Arthur Freedman. Psychiatrist and killer. I make $400,000 in a good year (more in a bad one). I am respected for my sanity, calm, cool and control. I am also a snob, a prick, a sadist; tense, anxious, alienated, a bad doctor and now a murderer. I am, in sum, the American wet dream.’
With amazing insight and a devastating sense of the psychoanalytic process, Gloria Nagy explores the secret inner life of a Beverly Hills psychoanalyst who discovers the perfect patient for his fantasies of total sexual abandon. As Venus granted Pygmalion’s wish for the perfect “Ivory Virgin,” Dr. Freedman finds in Rose, his own tarnished and shop worn version to mold and form. What transpires between them and within him turns this very black comedy into a bizarre, hilarious and moving tragedy about the prices we pay for self-deception and the fear of being who we really are, wherever and to whomever that road may take us.
