Rick Moskovitz MD is a Harvard-educated psychiatrist . .Carousel Music: a novel was my first book length fiction work. It was inspired by my fascination with recovered memories in psychotherapy, a subject of considerable controversy around the turn of the century. The father of a patient sues her psychiatrist because he feels falsely accused by her of molesting her as a child after memories emerge during her treatment, and they become estranged.

He left practice to venture further into writing fiction that explores the psychological consequences of living in a world of expanding possibilities.

Toggle navigationMENU. Powered by a fiercely intelligent, fluid narrative, well-developed characters and brisk pacing, Moskovitz’s (Carousel Music, 2004, et. novel is remarkably strong. That said, there are some highly improbable plot twists, and worldbuilding could stand to be upgraded; references to hover cars and robotic military, for example, greatly enhance the story’s richness.

CAROUSEL MUSIC tackles the controversy surrounding sexual abuse, false memories, and their relationship to psychotherapy with an intriguing blend of childhood horrors, family struggles, psychiatric sessions, and courtroom drama.
I think therapists and clients should all read this as well as anyone interested in how personality disorders might arise and how the sufferers and those around them might be affected. This book presents a well-rounded account of the effects of mental disturbance on people's relationships, and treatment of mental disturbances. The average person would not read a textbook on these subjects, but this is accessible to all.

"Carousel Music" while not being technical, presents the symptoms of "borderline personality disorder," the issue of "recovered memories," (true and/or false), use of dreams, patient confidentiality, addiction, cutting, bulimia, incest, medication for sufferers of neurological or mental disturbances, sexual abuse and so forth.

He presents these issues and more in a readable fashion while keeping our interest by having the therapist, a psychiatrist, sued in court over the problems an estranged father has with the accusations of sexual abuse, i.e., rape by his grown daughter. While telling the story he shows how members of families interact, how different members of a family can experience each other totally differently, the tricks that may be used by attorneys, and more.

Richard Moscovitz is not a skilled novel writer in a literary sense, but his writing is very clear and understandable. The plot is interesting with a court case being the main mystery. He makes it intriguing to find out about hypnotism, repressed to "recovered" memories, and so forth. He really explains the ins and outs of the feelings of the various victims, lawyers, family members and so forth while keeping us interested.

To address the issue of writing: I have read worse "literary" novels. At first I was going to give the book 3 stars based on its not being written as well as many other novels. But to be honest, there was one award winning book I read that was far worse in my opinion. As I was writing this review I realized how skillful the writer is in presenting issues of mental disturbance and therapy for an interested reader.
As someone who is a survivor of trauma and abuse at the hands of my Bio father,I found this book to be excellent for survivors.I was impressed with the quality of the writing and the content.I read it in one night.The book is well balanced,written with sincerity and guts.One of the best books I have read on this topic.I highly recommend it.
Dr. Moskovitz pens a fast-moving mystery that sensitively explores issues of trauma, repressed memory, and experience. The characters are complex and believable. I poured through this riveting page-turner quickly. This is a must read for anyone who is intrigued by how emotional memory affects decision making and behavior.
Love it
In a novel, brimming with reminiscent qualities found in a first-rate Sidney Sheldon selection, I have never been more tempted to turn to the last pages of a book in order to find out its ending.

From the Prologue, eluding to the book's well-chosen title and cover image meanings, until the breath-catching ending, "Carousel Music" moves at a captivating pace with many unexpected but carefully planned twists and surprises along the way.

Descriptive language and realistically defined characters within a well-developed story line make this book come to life, with the bonus of a puzzling question at the finish.

The author of "Carousel Music", Rick Moskovitz, a practicing psychiatrist, artfully give the reader a behind-the-scenes look at not only the inner workings of psychiatry and insights into the psyche, but also gives an uncompromising honest view of the sometimes depraved human condition, especially when skeletons of memories are hidden in the closet's darkest recesses.

Meticulous attention to detail was obviously taken in the writing of this book, from the research in the story's filling, to the flawless proofing and editing stages of it's printing.

For any who enjoy reading novels, this is the one to read next. You will truly not want to put it down until finished.
great ant
Not overly dramatic. Good flow of writing. Topic very well covered. I enjoyed that the "patient" isn't portrayed with typical fictional behavior of people with bpd/did.
Carousel Music by Rick Moskovitz
256 pages of suspense and heart rendering experiences of a young woman who spent several years in therapy to help her bulimia and borderline traits to relieve herself of the pain she endured during childhood and into adulthood. The author a practicing psychiatrist tells the story in a sensitive and thought provoking manner, which holds the interest of the reader to the very end. His sensitivity toward his clients is very vivid in the telling of his story. The courtroom scenes make you feel as though you are right there. I enjoyed this read from the very first page to the last. I read 242 pages in one day, I stopped 3 chapters before the end of the book as it was midnight! I was up at 6:30 the next morning to finish! I highly recommend this book.
A very interesting read making one wonder how the book will end. The author presents a young women with borderline personality disorder who recalls abuse during therapy. The validity of her remembrance is under speculation. I learned a great deal as the author presents both pros and cons of the accuracy of her memories without bias. I recommend this book to mental health consumers, their families and clinicians.
