I have often wondered whether he had any close friends. I often wished that I could have known him post-analytically. The London Kleinians discredit “late Bion”: the one after Transformations and particularly the one who emigrated to Los Angeles. This pains me enormously, but I cannot help wondering what they knew that I did not; on the other hand, I rather feel that I, having had the beneﬁt of an analytic experience with him, know something that they did not, and still do not, know. Bion did not reach out.
I recall many of Bion’s interpretations that were essentially Kleinian part-object interventions. I remember the session, for instance, in which, upon beginning the session, I exclaimed how happy I was. His interpretation was: “Well, it’s felt that you’ve found the cure. ” [Kleinian interpretation] What a beautiful way of interpreting manic defence!

I have reason to believe that this troubled him because it marginalized him. He would often retort, if asked why he had moved to Los Angeles from London, that he “was so loaded down with honours that he nearly sank without a trace”. In his presence one was always impressed by the depth of his mind, the intensity of his focus, and the extraordinary discipline of his thinking, as well as by his graciousness, manners, and accent.
