Abstract:

Written by the daughter of world-renowned psychoanalyst Erik Erikson, this is the intimate story of a daughter's struggle to develop a sense of self in a family--and a world--in which being famous is the very definition of being a worthwhile human being. Sue Erikson Bloland struggled from an early age to reconcile the public view of her father as a pioneering intellectual and quintessential father figure with the complex and insecure man she knew in private. Overwhelmed and eclipsed by her father's fame, she spent years searching for meaning and direction in her own life; yet she felt compelled to uphold her father's public image despite her awareness of his human vulnerabilities. In a portrait enriched by her own psychoanalytic training, Bloland shares her personal insights into the costs and rewards of celebrity. Her story, though unique in its personal details, describes a struggle faced by all of us in the modern, fame-obsessed world.
