Pierre Peju


The fateful meeting of Freud and Horace Frink, and the ensuing scandal that nearly destroyed psychoanalysis

In 1909, while on a fundraising lecture tour in America, Sigmund Freud met Horace Frink, an early disciple of his theories of psychoanalysis, whose traumatic childhood and complicated personal life came to cast a dark shadow over Freud’s professional career. Inspired by this little-known and tragic true story, artist Lionel Richerand and philosopher Pierre Péju have woven a spellbinding and thought-provoking fable of two divorces, three deaths, and a ménage à quatre.
