The Good Son

I highly recommend the suspense novel The Good Son, by Michael Gruber. One of the main characters is a Pakistani-American, Catholic/Muslim woman who is also a Zurich-trained Jungian analyst. How many spies in contemporary fiction do dream analysis for their terrorist captors?

The Dream Doctor


Charles McPhee, a nationally syndicated radio host and sleep expert known as the “Dream Doctor” died at age 49 on May 8, 2011.

“McPhee’s top-rated radio program aired in the country’s biggest markets. On the air, he sought to legitimize dream interpretation, a field of study that he said had strayed from its roots in the pioneering work of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. . . . In 1997, McPhee started a Web site and invited people to send him descriptions of their dreams. He collected more than 600,000 dreams from 90 countries and used the data for his interpretations.” —Portland Press Herald  McPhee’s website
New York Times article about McPhee and his diagnosis of ALS

Here’s an interesting blog by dreamer and artist Carla Young of the Bay area.
