    1. If you are fan of Henry James then you might enjoy this book. If I had to pair the book with another book, I would recommend Colm Tóibín’s The Master. Both books deal with what if. Yoder’s asks, What if Freud analyzed Henry James in 1908 at Lamb House. Tóibín asks what if we knew what James was thinking and feeling when he failed at writing plays between 1895 and 1900. Both writers dare to imitate the Jamesian style as the sincerest form of flattery, but I think that Tóibín did the bet [...]


    2. Henry James, who I know very little about, is analyzed by Sigmund Freud, who I know more about. Kind of fun, though it does lag a bit in the middle. One should also be somewhat familiar with both of these guys - I felt like I missed out a lot on the Henry James references, though Yoder does paint him as a larger than life character. A high-brow summer read.


    3. I'm pretty sure the only reason I love literary theory so much is because it's the only thing left that can make any real use of psychoanalysis. Shutting Henry James (who I would marry in a heartbeat, if only he would have me) up with Sigmund Freud is a delightful concept and Yoder reaffirms the multitude of reasons I love these two men so dearly.


    4. Well written albeit pretentious as hell. I kept thinking, "oh puleeze" but I enjoyed the fact the prose made me think. Made want to read Henry James. Nice to read something positive about Freud for a change. I like Europa books because of all the reviews on the back pages.


    5. This was one of the best books I have read bar none! It is a fictional account of an alleged meeting between Sigmund Freud and Henry James. It even features "letters" between James and Edith Wharton.Beautifully written, a very enjoyable, intellectual and FUN read!Highly recommended!


    6. Perhaps the first of several dozen Europa books that I didn't enjoylove Henry James, love the Europa books, but this book lacked the vitality and wit of a real interchange between James and Freudoddly stilted dialogue, no charm
