New York 1940
Embattled lay psychoanalyst Theodor Reik looks back to 'the years of his growing' in Vienna and Berlin - Freud and Schnitzler and Mahler

The Viennese writer Arthur Schnitzler died 80 years ago, Gustav Mahler 100 years ago.  Theodor Reik's "Arthur Schnitzler as Psychologist", one of the earliest applied psychoanalytic studies appeared in 1913.  In the summer of 1935 Sigmund Freud analysed Reik using a Schnitzler novella.

The fascinating story of Theodor Reik, his relationships with Freud and Schnitzler, Reik's own "compulsion to confession", and how the histories of both Mahler and Goethe became entangled in Reik's compulsions.
