First edition. This novel "describes an electric-shock treatment which alters personality beneficially and undermines many then-conventional views of the nature of the mind. The story is a melodramatic hotchpotch, but is of interest in its reference to the ego, which is described (as in the title) as holding no more than a mortgage on its habitat: this idea has found sophisticated support in late-20th-century studies of the workings of the mind." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), p. 544.
