Spider Speculations

A Physics and Biophysics of Storytelling

By Jo Carson

Paperback £16.99

There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

An investigation into how stories work in our bodies and our lives, from the author of Stories I Ain't Told Nobody Yet.

Jo Carson's intimate investigation into her own creative process was prompted by a series of life-changing events after she was bitten by a brown recluse spider. 

In Spider Speculations she applies cutting edge mind-body science, quantum physics and ancient shamanistic techniques to describe how stories work in our bodies and our lives, and what happens when real stories are used in a public way.

'Jo Carson has distilled some decades of community-conscious story collecting and playmaking into a pungent blend of narrative psychology, neuroscience, and spirit. Her work should be essential reading for socially responsible artists of every kind' Joseph Sobol, Director of the Storytelling Graduate Program at East Tennessee State University
