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.


What the Critics Say

"Analyzing her parents' damaged childhoods, Bloland eventually understands why they were such poor parents, and why they turned to professional success for their fulfillment. Anyone interested in the problems of fame will find Bloland's memoir useful." ( Publishers Weekly)

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
