Mark Edmundson talked about his book The Death of Sigmund Freud: The Legacy of His Last Days, published by Bloomsbury USA. He chronicles the final years of the life of Sigmund Freud (1856-1939), which included his escape from Vienna as Hitler’s army approached, and the publication in 1939 of his final book, Moses and Monotheism.
