FREUDIAN SLIP

There was an error in my note on 'Family Connections'.

The novelist daughter of Lucian Freud is Esther Freud, not Bella Freud. Bella is a fashion designer.

For British readers, there is a profile of Esther in today's Telegraph magazine. It mentions that the novelists Rose and Susie Boyt are Esther's half-sisters. I'm not sure if they have the same mother or same father - Lucian Freud had (possibly still has) a very tangled love life.

Enough of Freuds already!
