New Audio Edition - Critically-Acclaimed Bio of Dorothy Tiffany Burlingham
The fascinating scion of the famed Tiffany dynasty and longtime companion of Sigmund and Anna Freud stands vividly revealed in this eloquent, profound biography by her grandson Michael John Burlingham.
"Burlingham's research, insight, and honesty guarantee that each reader will respond intensely: we can no more escape his family than our own." - The New Yorker
"A drama set in a remarkable time in which New York City matured into an international metropolis, Sigmund Freud revolutionized Western thought, and Hitler rose and was crushed. ... This biography is rich in personal and historical detail." - The New York Times
Born in 1891, Dorothy Tiffany was the last child in the long line of the famous Tiffany dynasty of jewelers and artisans. As was expected of the young heiress, Dorothy married a wealthy member of the American plutocracy, Dr. Robert Burlingham. But the lackluster life of wealthy young women in early 20th century America held little appeal for Dorothy. Leaving behind her socially prominent husband, she took her children and moved to Europe, where she underwent psychoanalysis with Sigmund Freud.
Dorothy and her children became Sigmund and Anna Freud's longterm houseguests and intimate friends, developing a unique and storied extended family relationship that remains fascinating for its depth and complexity. But Dorothy's quest for fulfillment and a rich inner life ultimately had tragic consequences for those who were dearest to her as she embarked on a path that ultimately led to their downfall.
In his beautifully composed and extensively researched The Last Tiffany: A Biography of Dorothy Tiffany Burlingham, author Michael John Burlingham artfully portrays his grandmother's long and colorful life, and also sheds fascinating light on the entire Tiffany design and business dynasty.
The biography is sure to prove fascinating listening for anyone interested in the Freuds, the Tiffanys, women's history, psychoanalysis and related subjects.
