Another review in LARB

Years ago, I rather liked the essay Adam Phillips wrote on Freud and biography in Darwin’s Worms, which suggested psychoanalysis fundamentally pulls the rug out from the very idea of biography. Imagine my surprise to see Phillips later wrote a short biography of Freud! While it’s a fun read, it really does reveal his ambivalence over the project of life writing. For more you can read the whole review here in the Los Angeles Review of Books. You can decide for yourself whether “bio-riffing” is a valid concept.
