About the Author:

Vincent Brome was educated at Streatham Grammar and Elleston Schools. He started writing professionally at 13, and has since held a variety of jobs including feature writer, editor at Menu and Medical World magazines, and propagandist at the Ministry of Information during World War II. Brome wrote over thirty books including novels, biographies, literary and historical studies, and plays for radio and television. His novels The Embassy and The Surgeon were international bestsellers, and have been translated into eleven languages. He travelled very widely, and was present in Hungary during the 1956 uprising, an experience on which he based his novel The Revolution. He was also a regular contributor to radio, newspapers and magazines including The Observer, The Times and Sunday Times, The Guardian. The Spectator and The New Statesman (UK), and The Nation and The New York Times (USA).

Review:

Brome has talked to lots of Jung's contemporaries and gathered anecdotes and bits of evidence that shed new light on .... Jung. Brome's Jung is very human, brilliant and passionate.--The Boston GlobeThe New York Times Book Review

The best biography of Jung ever written; a rounded picture of a man who was both troubled and inspired, both scientist and mystic. . . [Brome] has neither over-simplified nor become lost in trivial psychological analysis.--The Spectator

This book is a very readable account of Carl Jung's life and work. The author is steeped in his subject, admires Jung as a psychologist, though not slavishly - I thoroughly enjoyed [it] and expect it will be indispensable reading.

It is simply unprecedented, not only as the first full length biography of one of the most complicated talents of [the] time, but is an insistently factual report on a tumultuous and confusing life produced by the rarest of all biographical gifts.
