Abstract:
This book, which uses illustrations assembled from family collections and from manuscripts, letters, and published material, sets out to discover the side of Freud the world did not often see. The result is an astonishingly immediate and stirring document which brings to life, often very touchingly, the husband and grandfather, the devoted friend, the comfortable bourgeois citizen, the radical thinker, the collector of antiquities, and, at the end of a long life, the cancer-racked exile from Nazism. Each photograph is captioned by a passage from Freud's own writing.
