“A charming, respectful examination of Freud’s work in comic form.”

Kirkus ReviewsJoin us for a whimsical evening with Sarah Boxer, the author of In the Floyd Archives, a cartoon novel based on Sigmund Freud's case histories and its post-Freudian sequel, Mother May I? based lightly on the works and lives of Melanie Klein and D.W. Winnicott. See how the misadventures of Boxer's neurotic clan of animals (including the bird analyst, Dr. Floyd and Melanin Klein, a little black sheep) form an allegory of object relations and a refreshingtake on psychoanalytic ideas.
