Harvard Book Store welcomes longtime staff writer for David Letterman and sixteen time Emmy-nominee BILL SCHEFT for a reading from his latest novel, Shrink Thyself.

In Shrink Thyself, Charlie Traub decides to leave psychotherapy and live the unexamined life. A noble goal, which would be even more noble if his former therapist (now his friend) didn't turn out to be beyond inappropriate and his mother didn't die in a way that would have made Freud transfer to dental school. Despite all unexamined evidence to the contrary, Charlie just might be unable to accept that wherever he goes, there he is.
