Reading this fascinating collection, I realized that, finally, we have a book that addresses the complexities of psychoanalysis in Latin America. Focusing on the political, cultural and social specificities of the region, this is an indispensable book that, from a novel and interdisciplinary perspective, fills an important gap existing in the big narratives on psychoanalysis. Its wonderfully crafted chapters question the possibilities and limitations of a psychoanalytic approach to the Latin American multiverse reality. It will become a must read for anyone interested in psychoanalysis and in Latin American culture and politics in general. Mariano Ben Plotkin, researcher at the Centro de Investigaciones Sociales (CONICET) and Professor at the Universidad Nacional de Tres de Febrero Psychoanalysis is here decolonized thanks to intense, unforgettable readings of urgent issues ranging from feminicide violence, to an impossible mourning for the desaparecidos, to melancholy and necropolitics, to decolonized clinical practice with Afro-Brazilians, to the plight of intersex and trans-transvestite children. This fiercely relevant collection shows how psychoanalysis in Latin America and the Caribbean brings about a transformation of race, class, and gender while redrawing the map of transnational psychoanalysis today. Patricia Gherovici, psychoanalyst and author of Transgender Psychoanalysis
