Misbegotten Muses is an analysis of «the» historical method, an illumination of history's failure to provide insight into crucial human events. The book offers alternate methods of interpretation, and deals with a broad range of subjects, from Cotton Mather, to The Donner Party, to James Agee. From symbol, to myth, to science-and-religion.

"Think a brimstone amalgam of Stephen King's "Word Processor of the Gods" with Carpenter's In The Mouth Of Madness" ... Fangoria Magazine. "Darkly sensual attention to detail we might have seen in Clive Barker's early work"... Imaqulotta's Irreverent Book Blog In the beginning was the Word – and the Word was a lie. A struggling writer dives into the dark pits of madness to create his most perfect work – a parallel of his own life, only twisted into a malignant hatred. When the written word opens a gateway to Hell, every truth the writer believes is challenged, every lie made truth. As a trail of death and sorrow spills from the words, the writer is drawn into an unholy abyss to become Hell's Muse.

Acclaimed playwright Terrence McNally’s works are characterized by such diversity that critics have sometimes had difficulty identifying the pattern in his carpet. To redress this problem, in Muse of Fire, Raymond-Jean Frontain has collected McNally’s most illuminating meditations on the need of the playwright to first change hearts in order to change minds and thereby foster a more compassionate community. When read together, these various meditations demonstrate the profound ways in which McNally himself functioned as a member of the theater community—as a strikingly original dramatic voice, as a generous collaborator, and even as the author of eloquent memorials. These pieces were originally written to be delivered on both highly formal occasions (academic commencement exercises, award ceremonies, memorial services) and as off-the-cuff comments at highly informal gatherings, like a playwriting workshop at the New School. They reveal a man who saw theater not as the vehicle for abstract ideas or the platform for political statements, but as the exercise of our shared humanity. “Theatre is collaborative, but life is collaborative,” McNally says. “Art is important to remind us that we’re not alone, and this is a wonderful world and we can make it more wonderful by fully embracing each other. [. . .] I don’t know why it’s so hard to remind ourselves sometimes, but thank God we’ve had great artists who don’t let us forget. And thank the audiences who support them because I think that those artists’ true mission has been to bring the barriers down, break them down; not build walls, but tear them down.”

The Landscape of the Mind

The Landscape of the Mind

The book traces these transformations from early Spanish explorers, to Native Americans, to Mountain Men, to The Cowboy, to an immigrant group (the Mormons), to current images.

The Landscape of the Mind concerns itself with cultural ways of finding meaning in and imposing meaning on a specific landscape, the American West. The book traces these transformations from early Spanish explorers, to Native Americans, to Mountain Men, to The Cowboy, to an immigrant group (the Mormons), to current images. No book now in print has dealt with the nature of such transformations. The book is a direct response to Elias Canetti's insightful comment that, «The talent for transformation which has given man so much power over all other creatures has as yet scarcely been considered or begun to be understood.»
