Item description for Jung, My Mother and I by Jane Reid...
The psychoanalytic writings of Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) are well-known and biographies of every hue have been published. But what was Jung like in his workaday analytic sessions, and how did he interact with his clients, colleagues and friends on a daily basis?
Catharine (Katy) Cabot, an American in Europe, was a patient of Jung's and also a part of his Zrich circle from the 1930's through the 1940's and she recorded the details of her sessions with him along with other inner and outer events. "Onkel" (Uncle), as Jung became to her, and his family and his friends, all were a part of her life in those years.

Jung, My Mother and I Jun 20, 2002
This book is a breakthrough in the category of books about Jung. Based on the careful notes of her analysis, handed to her daughter during the last of her life, Katy Cabot depicts a human, warm, gossipy side to the great psychologist. The result is an example of how he adapted himself to a young extraverted American ex-patriate socialite who sincerely wanted to grow. The plight of her young and only child [the author] is told with remarkable restraint, given the lack of concern of the mother, as she traveled from hotel to hotel and country to country. We get glimpses of that child's perception of Jung, as well and she grew up to become a Jungian analyst herself. Fascinating glimpses into Jung's opinions of his wife, Toni Wolf, and the many members of the Analytical Psychology Club in Zurich in the 30's and 40's! A super book.
