Favorite Things: Erin Wilson

Valentin de las Sierras
Bruce Baillie, 1967, 9 mins
Really, the whole Radical Light series at the Pacific Film Archive.

Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture
Jonathan D. Katz & David C. Ward, curators & authors, 2010
The art (as best as I can tell from the catalog), controversy & surrounding conversation.

On Kissing, Tickling and Being Bored: Psychoanalytic Essays on the Unexamined Life
Adam Phillips, 1993
" . . . as a form of treatment, psychoanalysis is a conversation that enables people to understand what stops them from having the kinds of conversations they want, and how they have come to believe that these particular conversations are worth wanting."

A Community Writing Itself: Conversations with Vanguard Writers of the Bay Area
Sarah Rosenthal, ed., 2010

Hard Facts of the Brother's Grimm
Maria Tatar, 1987
My favorite chapter is "Victims and Seekers: The Family Romance of Fairy Tales." The original tales are not bedtime reading.
