The book

Lions at Lamb House imagines what happens when an Austrian psychiatrist responds to the urgent request of a Boston colleague. The colleague, who fears his brother’s intention to rewrite his early novels may be the sign of debilitating neuroses, urges the Austrian psychiatrist to visit and evaluate his brother at home in the south of England. The time is 1908. The Austrian is Sigmund Freud. The Bostonian is William James and the novelist is his brother Henry. What comes of Freud’s ten-day visit to Lamb House is fiction of a high order, at once artful and entertaining.
