A Case of Hysteria draws on Freud’s analysis of Dora, a young woman who is brought to him by her father. Dora is suffering from repeated loss of voice and a nervous cough. Sharon Kivland has created a mystery novel about Dora, which investigates the events discussed in her analysis as clues to the unlocking of a story of love and betrayal.

The book is a critical study that rewrites one of the key texts in psychoanalysis. A Case of Hysteria reveals an illuminating picture of Dora. The writer-turned detective traces the events recounted in the analysis, following the story to Vienna, Meran and Frazenbad.
