Professor Brett Kahr, an award-winning biographer and scholar of long-standing, has resurrected Sigmund Freud from the dead and has invited him for a memorable cup of coffee—a pleasurable interlude in which the two men discuss Freud’s life and work in compelling detail.
After digesting Kahr’s highly accessible “posthumous interview” with Freud, readers will have come to acquire a thorough overview of Freud’s corpus of writings, and will appreciate the historical context in which he scripted his pioneering psychoanalytical contributions.
A highly creative exercise in “imaginative non-fiction”, this book – the second in a new series entitled Interviews with Icons – will delight novices and experienced professionals alike.
Illustrated by Alison Bechdel--winner of the MacArthur Foundation “Genius” award and author of Fun Home -- this book will be the perfect guide for both students and scholars, and the ideal gift for colleagues.
