Psychiatrist Victor Karleen is financially pressed between the rental of his posh office apartment and his fiancée’s expensive tastes. A colleague has written a best-selling case history book and is now rolling in royalties. Good friend Parker Donnelly has rejected Victor’s similar work because the public is tired of such things and prefers torrid fiction. Needing cash, Victor reluctantly takes on a new patient who, due to love frustration, is grinding out a rip-roaring sex novel. By mistake, his nurse gives the patient’s manuscript to Donnelly believing it to be Victor’s work.
Suddenly Victor has an enormous advance royalty check, a Book of the Month Club selection, and a potential Pulitzer Prize. When he discovers that it is his patient’s inviolate confidences and not his clinical casebook that has saved the day, Victor determines to keep his patient crazy until he dreams up the final chapter. Meanwhile, Back on the Couch is fast-paced, hilarious, and zany.
