Aciman, Toibin among Contributors to Book on Sigmund Freud

NEW YORK — Andre Aciman, Colm Toibin and Rick Moody are among the authors contributing to an essay collection on the legacy of Sigmund Freud.

“On the Couch: Writers Analyze Sigmund Freud,” conceived and edited by the literary agent Andrew Blauner, is scheduled for release in 2023 by Princeton University Press.

“Freud is a complicated and controversial figure, and this anthology will present a wealth of diverse and engaging perspectives on his legacy,” Princeton University Press Executive Editor Anne Savarese said in a statement Thursday.

Other writers featured in the book include Jennifer Finney Boylan, Gerald Early, Siri Hustvedt and Esther Freud, great-granddaughter of Sigmund Freud. Blauner previously edited “Now Comes Good Sailing: Writers Reflect on Henry David Thoreau,” which included essays by Amor Towles, Lauren Groff and Pico Iyer.


While retellings of ancient Greek myths from the point of view of less-well-known characters continue to be a popular segment of the literary landscape, a new book offers a helpful guide to the impressive multitude of female mythological characters from around the world.
