 “Charney distinguishes herself in her smart, playfully organic exploration of character… With Distantly Related to Freud, Charney has crafted a witty, psychologically astute account of a girl growing into herself and her talents.”
The Montreal Gazette
“…the tone and the pace of the novel is unwavering and strong.”
Globe and Mail

 “The title of this novel aptly captures both the depth and the pretensions of Ellen’s Montreal family of Central European Jews displaced by the war. From an early age, Ellen grows up learning not to get attached to people and not to explore history, two classic refugee traits. The book takes the reader on Ellen’s journey of relearning.”
