1939. Sigmund Freud has fled from Vienna to London, bringing with him his famous couch and his determination to free the subconscious. Accompanied by his faithful biographer and physician, Jones, he ventures out into the city of Virginia Woolf and T. S. Eliot, where he uncovers a series of shocking secrets . . .
Or does he? Perhaps Freud, in his last days, is only dreaming up possible Londons, each one more insightful and magical than the one before. The city seems happy to prove one thing, but also its opposite. The one certainty is that, in the background, the nation is preparing for its greatest act of rational madness - war.
A small masterpiece, FREUD'S ALPHABET is a moving evocation of a lost time, and a dazzlingly original series of riffs on Freud's ideas.
