‘…This book is a portable museum and one that could provoke a hundred novels…if this is free association, it is of a high order, drawing together mythology, anthropology, modern history, science, superstition, religion, comedy and tragedy − and spiky humour.’ − Art Monthly

This book is a companion to Susan Hiller at the Freud Museum, an installation that was originally commissioned by Book Works. Hiller’s witty and erudite commentary is a response to Sigmund Freud’s astonishing personal collection of art and antiquities, his library, his consulting room (including the famous couch) at his last home, in London. The book presents a series of archaeological collection boxes, and through turning the pages the reader embarks on a personal journey that discloses the secrets of each box.
