Fisher recalls significant dreams and nightmares throughout his story. How important should dreams be in a young person's, or for that matter anyone's life be? Do dreams take on more significance to a person like Fisher - a writer (whether conscious or not yet)?
I suppose I am concerned with the role that the realm of the imaginary, the sublime, shadows, plays in the lives of those who are constantly confronted by madness, suffering and despair in their waking existance. At some point, it seems to me, that a writer, sets out to achieve existing in the world of the imagination. Do you agree? Does this ever seem to be the case with Fisher throughout the book?
