Product Details


“Gossipy, enthralling…this book captures the age in which Freud lived during the first half of his long life…One could say that “The Restless Years,” with its vivid anecdotes and rakish candor, is a kind of collaboration between Freud and Mr. Feaver.”—Dominic Green, The Wall Street Journal

“It is rare that a subject’s voice rings so clearly through his own biography, and its salty, bragging, screw-you tone, its barbed humor and sudden darts into seriousness, fleet as a fish, are among the main pleasures of this book…the writer’s deep background as a critic shines through.”—Jan Dalley, The Financial Times

“Art, debauchery, nightlife, and lowlifes fill out this rollicking biography of the celebrated British painter…the result is a riotously entertaining narrative that immerses readers in Freud’s beguiling sensibility.” –Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
