Is it dissociation or fantasy when Lacy Dawn talks to trees and they talk back? http://electricrev.net/2014/08/12/a-universe-on-the-edge/

Mary Thornburg I read this in the same way I read magic realism... actually, if I had to decide on a genre label for the book (something I hate to do for almost any book!), I'd call it magic realism. I wonder if all good fiction isn't that, in a sense. I mean, if it isn't REAL for the reader, then the reader isn't engaged and that's the end of that. But it's FICTION, so all but the most naive of readers step across that border. And in the country across that border, the real and the unreal swirl around each other so closely that for all intents and purposes they're the same. So my answer to your question is yes. It's dissociation or fantasy. Or both. And both.

Keith Blodgett I chalk it p to the magic of childhood. Her mother mentions talking to inanimate objects when she was a child.
