Born several weeks after her paretns'arrival in the United states, Carol Ascher came of age in Topeka, Kansas, where her father, a Vienna-trained psychoanalyst, found work among the group of refugee clinicians recruited there for the Menninger Clinic. Growing up, Ascher's challenge was to reconcile the Midwestern views of her community, the irrepressible optimisim of her mothr and her's tendency to romanticize her Berlin childhood, and the more sardonic views of her father and his highly cultured emigre circle, for whom memory was both illness and cure.
