You Never Know: A Memoir
Romy Shiller, a medical mystery, not only tells the story of her brain surgery, lengthy coma and Akinetic Mutism, but she muses about reality, death, time, popular culture, psychic phenomena and dreams.
She applies her previous interest and scholarly work on the body to her new physical reality. Her positive attitude and unique philosophy are truly inspirational.
Combines an academic exploration of reincarnation with real-life experiences. Using as a basis the altered reality of quantum physics, Shiller extrapolates. It is for everyone. More than anything it is an insightful philosophy on life.
‘Who Knew?' is a continuation of Romy Shiller's book ‘You Never Know: A Memoir.' Romy is considered a medical mystery and applies her previous interest and scholarly work on the body to her new physical reality.
Boy gets the girl? The conventional set-up in plays has expectation associated with it. This play defies cultural expectation by exploding heterosexual myths and priorities. Race, age and beauty are also exposed as cultural constructs, which can be constructed differently.
Le Wow is a retelling of 1980s Montreal from a girl-culture vantage point. As a witness to certain places Shiller is documentarian and as a pop-culture analyst she weaves into her story a 1980s sensibility.
