As the daughter of the renowned psychoanalyst Erik H. Erikson, Sue Erikson Bloland has struggled to reconcile the public view of her father as a pioneering intellectual with the complex and rather insecure man whom she knew in private. In a portrait enriched by her own psychoanalytic training, Bloland describes her family both before and after the advent of EriksonÂ's renown and explores the ramifications of the pursuit of fame. In this beautifully written and moving memoir, Bloland presents a portrait of her life and describes the struggle we all face as we seek fulfillment and a sense of self-worth in a celebrity- obsessed society.
