Imagine growing up gay in a family whose world-renowned father calls lesbianism a gateway to mental illness. And it is always, he said, caused by the father and curable by analysis. Now imagine that he analyzes you.

Rebecca Coffey has written a fictionalized account about what may well have transpired in the Freud household after Anna Freud revealed to her father Sigmund that she loved women, and will read from "Hysterical: Anna Freud's Story" on Feb. 25 at The Green Arcade.

Booklist called Hysterical: Anna Freud’s Story “avidly researched, shrewd, and unnerving,” as well as “complexly entertaining, sexually dramatic, and acidly funny.”

LAMBDA Literary wrote that it’s got “a plot so rife with tension it’ll make you squirm.”

Author REBECCA COFFEY, is a nationally known science journalist (Scientific American and Discover magazines, and more) and humorist (McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, The Rumpus, and her faux cookbook Nietzsche’s Angel Food Cake: And Other “Recipes” for the Intellectually Famished).
