Reviews

Intelligent and wholly absorbing.... Judicious, original biography, scrupulously grounded in close readings of [Freud's] work.--Michiko Kakutani
Brilliant.... A dazzling performance.... Gay's ability to integrate into a coherent whole the vast published and unpublished literature on Freud including hundreds of previously unknown or inaccessible letters is awesome.... A work of art.--Jonathan Sharp
Elegant... puts Freud's life into the context of his time while attempting to explain him for readers who cannot escape his shadow. In Gay's hands, the Olympian figure is almost within mortal reach.--Michael Skube
