To Redeem One Person Is to Redeem the World: The Life of Frieda Fromm-Reichmann

Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

In 1964, a thinly fictionalized account of a treatment at Chestnut Lodge Hospital was published with the title I Never Promised You a Rose Garden. Hannah Green, the pseudonymous author, described her psychotherapy with "Dr. Fried." Defying all expectations, the book became extraordinarily popular and ultimately sold more than 5 million copies. It was also made into a movie in 1977.
