Escape from Selfhood by Ilany Kogan

Book Description

Escape from Selfhood is a detailed study of a very traumatised son of a Hungarian couple who managed to evade the Nazi death machinery by finding refuge in a house protected by the Swedish Embassy in Budapest. Ilany writes like a master novelist as she describes her patient's attempts to invade her, fuse with her and destroy her. Concomitantly Ilany does not flinch from relating her own pain and suffering as she engages with a person who is both a victim and victimizer. The resultant account is chilling and electrifying. This is a very elegant and timely study highly recommended for its readability and clarity of exposition.
