Hot on the heels of Pomeroy, Castro's third novel Double-Wolf was also published in 1991. It takes as its premise the fact that Sergei Wespe, Freud's famous 'Wolfman' patient, was an aspiring writer, and adept at spinning tales. Was what he told Freud 'the truth' about his neurotic condition, or did he spin out an elaborate narrative to please Freud? If the latter, where does Freud's own 'narrative' or 'discourse', psychotherapy, stand?

Based on research about the real Wolfman, Castro combines reality and imagination in a vivid tale that has the reading guessing: what is 'the truth'? At times salacious and at times outrageously funny, it questions the idea of the 'myths' that we consctruct to make sense of our world.
