"The Story of Sidonie C." with Jane Czyzselska and Stella Duffy
From the announcement by the organizer "Gay's The Word" bookshop:
"An event inspired by the recently translated book 'The Story of Sidonie C.' by Ines Rieder and Diana Voigt (translated by Jill Hannum and Ines Rieder) published by Helena History Press.
At the age of 17 Margarethe Csonka fell deeply in love with a stunning and notorious upper-class courtesan, attempted suicide when she was rejected and was sent by her parents to Prof. Freud to be 'normalized'. The attempted cure was a failure.
Now finally available in English, this biography of Margarethe Csonka-Trautenegg (1900—1999) offers a fully-rounded picture of a willful and psychologically complex aesthete. As Freud's never-before-identified 'case of female homosexuality', her analysis continues to spark often heated psychoanalytic debate.
