The publisher's blurb reads: ''Brenda Webster describes what it as like to grow up in an intellectual and artistic Jewish family in the post World War II era. Her father was a prominent entertainment lawyer whose clients included the Marx Brothers, Lillian Hellman, and Erskine Caldwell. Her mother was a protegee of Arshile Gorky, his first biographer, and herself a well-known abstract impressionist painter. Growing up within a society that held Freudian analysis as the new diversion, Webster was given early access to the analyst's couch. The history of mental illness in her mother's family kept her there. As a result Freudian thought became something that was impossible for Webster to avoid. What unfolds in her narrative is both a personal histoyr of analysis and a critical examination of Freudian practices.'' 8vo (about 9.25 inches tall) 193 pages.
