'In this magisterial work, the author almost encyclopaedically reviews all of Bion's works and does so from the perspective (vertex) of the aesthetic dimension. She scans virtually all the essential elements of Bion's contributions and then details them at length, giving unusual clarifications as she does so..'This work constitutes an outstanding piece of Bion scholarship and interpretation. One comes away from it with a deep appreciation for the authors dreaming of Bion's work and for the light she has shined on many of Bion's more recondite themes.'- James Grotstein MD, Professor of Psychiatry, UCLA School of Medicine, from his Preface
