My book "Draining the Amazon's Swamp: All that we do when we read, write, watch, make -- live -- our fictions" is now available for (free) viewing/download. Essays I wrote, 2002 - 2006. Books and movies become part of our lived life, worlds we experience -- for real. Much here, especially, about how we use books/movies to satisfy needs/urges we would rather remain unconscious of. Also, some feelings-out of how we experience things like movement, shapes, spaces, in these environments. How these things make us feel. Typical plot assessments become artifice, obstructive-cover for the more vital stuff we're up to.
