The fateful meeting of Freud and Horace Frink, and the ensuing scandal that nearly destroyed psychoanalysis

In 1909, while on a fundraising lecture tour in America, Sigmund Freud met Horace Frink, an early disciple of his theories of psychoanalysis, whose traumatic childhood and complicated personal life later cast a shadow over Freud’s professional career—and came close to destroying his reputation. This little-known and ultimately tragic true story of two divorces, three deaths, and a ménage à quatre, as well as the questionable motives behind Freud’s involvement in it, is the subject of a groundbreaking collaboration between artist and animator Lionel Richerand and the prizewinning philosopher, biographer, and novelist Pierre Péju.
