Book Description
Sudhir Kakar, India`s most celebrated psychoanalyst, an inspired observer of the Indian psyche and a distinguished novelist, was born in 1938 in Nainital. He spent his childhood in the many provincial towns of undivided Punjab, where his father was a magistrate in the colonial government. In a personal memoir that is woven into the loop of larger lifehistoriesラ of a nation and a peopleラKakar paints a sensuously detailed portrait of an Indian childhood while reflecting on the complexities of family life. Abandoning a successful career at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, Kakar trained as a psychoanalyst at the Sigmund Freud Institute, Frankfurt, and set up a clinic in Delhi in 1975. His simultaneous engagement in research, writing and clinical practice led him to embark on a lifelong search for the wellsprings of Indian identity and to establish the new discipline of cultural psychology. In keeping with Kakar`s belief in the primacy of desire, this memoir grapples with not only crises of identity and intellect, but also the ecstasies and vicissitudes of erotic pleasure and love. A Book of Memory is fearless and revelatory with regard to the self and its motivations, a rare candour illuminating the urbane prose.
