Publisher's Summary

In the Shadow of Fame, by the daughter of world-renowned psychoanalyst and theorist Erik Erikson, is the intimate story of her struggle to come to terms with her father's fame and to develop a sense of self in a family, and world, in which being famous is the very definition of being a worthwhile human being. And, while her story is unique in its personal details, it is also a description of the struggle faced by all of us in a modern world.

Understanding more of Erikson

I really liked listening to Ericksons daughters perspective as it helps us understand Erikson more from another angle as well as the reasons why people may become psychoanalysists
