It is less well known that he was still living in Vienna more than half a century since his analysis with Freud.In this remarkable book the Wolf-Man comes alive not only through Freuds case history, which is reprinted in full, and Ruth Mack Brunswicks account of the follow-up analysis which she conducted, but also through his own autobiographical memoirs covering his childhood in Russia, his recollections of Freud, his marriage, and the circumstances of his life in Vienna after the First World War.

The story of the Wolf-Mans later years is told by the editor of this volume, Dr Muriel Gardiner, who kept in close touch with him following the shattering suicide of his wife in 1938.The Wolf-Man needed immense resources of vitality to live through the emotional and material losses that he sustained. There can be no doubt that it was Freuds analysis that saved him from a crippled existence, and he himself was convinced that without psychoanalysis he would have been condemned to lifelong misery.Muriel Gardiner, in her introduction, writes: This book is unique. It contains the moving and very personal autobiography of the subject of a famous case in medical science as well as two psychoanalytic histories of the same person.

Although our literature is filled with biographies and autobiographies of celebrated people, there is no other book which gives us the human story of a struggling, passionate individual, seen both from his own point of view and from that of the founder of psychoanalysis.
