Freud on Holiday. Volume 2. A Disturbance of Memory - Sharon Kivland


Like Sigmund Freud and his brother, Sharon Kivland and her sister go on holiday together each year. In Trieste in  19 SF and his brother determine to go to Corfu but are told by their host it will be too hot and they should go to Athens instead. Any change of plan seems impractical, but they succeed in booking tickets for Athens. When Freud arrives in Athens and stands on the Acropolis he is surprised to find himself thinking: ‘So all this really does exist, just as we learnt at school!’ His surprise is twofold; first, that something unbelievable exists, and secondly, that its existence should have been in doubt. In A Disturbance of Memory, SK and her sister, accompanied by SK’s son, follow the Freud brothers to Trieste and Athens, but are frequently diverted by other traces, including those of James Joyce, Jacques Derrida, Italo Svevo, and Ulysses. There are photographs and drawings of uncertain origin, and descriptions of food, trains, and family romances. The English text is followed by a Greek translation.

Format: Paperback, 230 mm x 145 mm, 186 pages, including the Greek translation, 50 black & white illustrations
