Summary
Sigmund Freud lies ill. A man whose work, whose very life, has depended on the power of speech has now been all but silenced by cancer of the jaw. In the waking darkness he receives a visitor, come to tell a story that Freud will recognise.But this is a different account of what happened when Oedipus met his natural father at the place where three roads meet. A story of choice, not fate: of what we know and what we believe, at all costs, we must not know.Salley Vickers' Where Three Roads Meet is a strikingly original book in the Myths Series. It retells the tragedy of Oedipus from an unexpected point of view and at the same time is a deeply moving portrait of the last days of Sigmund Freud, when his theory of the Oedipus complex was already as famous as he was.'A witty, ingenious novel...Vickers is comically irreverent about her own profession and deft at teasing out the slippery truths of Oedipus's tale.' ObserverSalley Vickers is the author of the bestselling Miss Garnet's Angel, Instances of the Number 3, Mr Golightly's Holiday and The Other Side of You. She has worked as a university teacher of English and a psychoanalyst. She now writes full time.tetxpublishing.com.au
