Synopsis: This book is the narrative of an unlikely, tragic/comic encounter among three men: K.R. Eissler, a brilliant, venerable psychoanalyst & scholar of psychoanalysis; Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, a flamboyant, restless 42-year-old Sanskrit scholar turned psychoanalyst turned virulent anti-Freudian; & Peter Swales, a mysterious, mischievous 35-year-old former assistant to the Rolling Stones & self-taught Freud scholar. The early history of psychoanalysis is the background against which the Oedipal drama between the dozen of psychoanalysis & the two younger men is played out. An extraordinary story.
