At first, historians regarded the story of Sigmund Freud's affair with his sister-in-law Minna Bernays as nothing more than the scurrilous attempt of a rival to deflate the reputation of the founder of psychoanalysis. In recent years, however, new research has enhanced the veracity of that claim. In this new novel by Karen Mack and Jennifer Kaufman (A Version of the Truth; Literacy and Longing in L.A.), Bernays arrives in 1895 Vienna, soon to become enmeshed in the knot of a very Freudian human drama. A historical novel that resonates with the genius, abandon, and closely guarded secrets of the time. Editor's recommendation.
