The last entry in Freud's diary, for August 25, 1939, reads: “War Panic.” He died a month later, in London, a few weeks after war was declared with Germany. Freud appears 13 times in A Book of Ages, seeing his mother naked, getting a couch, meeting Jung, advising Mahler about his mother fixation, collecting knick-knacks (which may or may not have been a substitution for something else,) quitting smoking.
