William Goldman
“Writing is finally about one thing: going into a room alone and doing it. Putting words on paper that have never been there in quite that way before.

No matter how diamond-bright your ideas are dancing in your brain, on paper they are earthbound.”
William Goldman, Adventures in the Screen Trade

Though prostrate in the dust.”

MPD [Dissociative Identity Disorder] is one of the oldest Western psychiatric diagnoses. We have clearly
“MPD [Dissociative Identity Disorder] is one of the oldest Western psychiatric diagnoses. We have clearly described cases dating back two or more centuries. In addition to the contributions of Pierre Janet, Monon Prince, and others, we have descriptions of early MPD cases by such important historical figures as Benjamin Rush, father of U.S. psychiatry (Carlson, 1981). Thus MPD is consistent across time and cultures; such a claim can be documented for few other psychiatric disorders. And, as this book demonstrates, MPD and other forms of pathological dissociation are found in children and have features that fit with developmental data and theories.

Criticisms of the existence of MPD often appear to be directed more at the mass media stereotype described earlier than at the actual condition.”
Frank W. Putnam, Dissociation in Children and Adolescents: A Developmental Perspective
