As the daughter of the renowned psychoanalyst Erik H. Erikson, Sue Erikson Bloland struggled from an early age to reconcile the public view of her father as a pioneering intellectual - and, for many, a quintessential father figure - with the complex and rather insecure man whom she knew in private.

In her beautifully written and moving memoir, Bloland recounts her father's rise to celebrity and the eagerness with which her parents embraced fame. Feeling overwhelmed and eclipsed by her father's acclaim, she spent many years searching for meaning and direction in her own life. She watched her father relate comfortably to strangers in ways that he was unable to with his own family. And like the children of many celebrities, she felt compelled to uphold her father's public image despite her awareness of his human vulnerabilities.

In a portrait enriched by her own psychoanalytic training, Bloland describes her family both before and after the advent of her father's fame, sharing her personal insights into the costs as well as the rewards of celebrity.
