Sophie Freud-- author, teacher, social worker, mother, daughter, and grand-daughter of Sigmund Freud--here offers, for the first time, a candid portrait of her struggles in her own life. Blessed and cursed with the legacy of a famous family, Dr. Freud has negotiated her way from a blissful childhood in Vienna, to Paris, to Radcliff College, to her present-day life as on one of the most respected teachers in her field. My Three Mothers and Other Passions is a remarkable story about a remarkable woman, and Dr. Freud explores with us openly and engagingly the many experiences of her life.
Sophie Freud is Professor of Social Work, Simmons College, Boston. She is a writer, a teacher, and lectures widely in North America and abroad.
