About this Item

Octavo in red burgundy cloth/brown paper in white dust jacket; 172 pages ; 22 cm. In English. This is the book that inspired Kate Bush's "Cloudbusting". "In this brave and moving book, the young son of Wilhelm Reich-the brilliant and controversial psychoanalyst and theorist whose books and laboratory apparatus were destroyed by the FDA in the fifties-probes with great depth and insight into the relationship between his extraordinary father and himself. When Reich died in 1957, Peter was thirteen. Although it took him several years to recover from the death, it took many more-another thirteen-to emerge from the overwhelming influence of his father's life-and death-to find his own indentity in the process." -dust jacket.
