Please visit my new Facebook page for updates on the book, and to read about new cinematic quests for identity and meaning. I hope you will participate in discussions, too. I have posted road pictures from my travels, remembered Alice Rohrwacher's "The Wonders" (2014), and listed the Oscar-nominated quest films. My Facebook page is "Maria Garcia, Author" and the URL is: https://www.facebook.com/MariaGarciaNYC.

Last week, as I walked onto the deck of the pool where I swim laps, Julie, one of my "pool friends," paused in mid-lap and shouted: "Where have you been? I have been asking about you all month. Is your book finally finished?"
It had been longer than a month since I had gotten to swim my usual mile--but I could answer Julie definitively, and in the affirmative. In fact, "Cinematic Quests for Identity" is in production. It will be published in late March or early April by Rowman & Littlefield. Their description appears here: https://rowman.com/ISBN/9781442246973
