Leslie, depends on what you mean by accurate? Take a look at Marcel Proust and his semi-autobiographical novel, "Remembrance of Things Past". He keeps going back to a memory of something that happened in his family's garden when he was very young. And each memory creates a whole different plot line over and over again as Proust mines all the emotions connected with that event. I think the Freudians go into how much we alter our memories of events long ago in our childhoods and often repress them. I know we have some Freudians here (Dr Sarno among them) who might be able to offer the latest theories about how repressed emotions and memories interact to alter events in the past. I know that a lot of people who recount memories of being molested as children weren't really molested. Something about incest prohibitions.
