Product description


'Brenda Maddox tells Ernest Jones's story with economy and verve, mixing relevant details of his personal life with brilliant insights into the history of psychoanalysis' (Andrew Lycett, Literary Review)

'Brenda Maddox has a gift for tangential approaches. She hits on an angle that has been missed, or she unearths a minor figure who leaps to life irresistible as she writes. She has done it again with Ernest Jones, Freud's disciple and biographer... Maddox pulls no punches in dealing with either the wizard or his master, and she kept me entertained from start to finish with the very odd story she has to tell' (Claire Tomalin, Guardian)

'Maddox's lesson of [Jones'] useful, compromised life is an object lesson in biographical advocacy. She speaks well for the slippery Jones, and makes me wish I had met him' (Norman Lebrecht)

'Our best biographer of the ones that got away, has uncovered another brilliant subject' (Norman LeBrecht, Evening Standard)

'The "dark inconsistencies" of Jones's sexuality perplexed Freud, who did not have the benefit of this biography to aid his understanding of a quirkily quixotic intellectual and emotional adventure.' (Iain Finlayson, The Times)

'A good introduction to the turbulent and often strange beginnings of psychoanalysis' (Hanif Kureishi, The Observer)

Book Description

From an award-winning biographer, the remarkable story of the founder of British pschyoanalysis, Freud's right hand man
