A practicing psychoanalyst and faculty member of the Psychoanalytic Center of Philadelphia, Susan S.

Her contribution to the latter volume, for which she served as editor, originally appeared in the International Journal of Psychoanalysis as “Means and ends in Hitchcock’s Vertigo, or Kant you see?” She has taught classes in clinical case writing for many years and has served on editorial boards of professional journals. Her first Sandra Krasnapol story, “Seeing Red,” was published in Constellations: a Journal of Poetry and Fiction (2020), the second, “Certifiable,” by International Psychotherapy Institute EBooks (2022), the third, “Taking Leave,” by the White Wall Review, and the fourth, “Break,” by The MacGuffin. A fifth, “Dignity,” has recently been accepted by Jewish Fiction .net.
