This book is an unparalleled artistic voyage into the realms of fantasy inspired by the actual facts of Sigmund Freud's life. Through a masterful interplay of text & illustration, Steadman transforms every major event in Freud's life into a "joking situation" based on the joking techniques discussed in Freud s book, "Jokes & Their Relation to the Unconscious". The result is a fantastic Freudian festival, full of visual & verbal puns, unexpected insights & sheer intellectual enjoyment. Superbly illustrated with more than 50 major drawings & 25 vignettes, this book will be a treat for all of Freud's & Steadman's fans.

Ralph Steadman has been a cartoonist since 1956, starting as a caustic observer of Britain's political and social scene. He is well known as the illustrator of Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Steadman's work appears regularly in newspapers and magazines, including Rolling Stone and the Atlantic Monthly, and his many published books include Tales of the Weirrd and Alice in Wonderland.Review:
Strangely compelling....In typical Steadman style the drawings go beyond a normal perception of an idea and leap ahead into the bizarre mindscape where Steadman's artwork takes on a life of its own. (Terry Peters North Shore News 2007-03-09)
Steadman's text here is as witty as his drawings, both illustrating not only Freud's classification of jokes, but also the events of Freud's life. (The North Carolina Review of Books)
