From the producers of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel," Grimm stars David Giuntoli ("Privileged," "Grey's Anatomy"), Russell Hornsby ("In Treatment," "Lincoln Heights"), Silas Weir Mitchell
("Burn Notice," "My Name is Earl"), Bree Turner (Smashed, "The Mentalist"), Sasha Roiz (Pompeii, "Warehouse 13"), Bitsie Tulloch (The Artist, "Tyranny"), Reggie Lee (The Dark Knight Rises, "No Ordinary Family) and Claire Coffee ("Franklin and Bash," "General Hospital").
In addition to the discussion of Higginson, Fuller does an outstanding job outlining the profound emotional effects of the war: Dickinson's odd poems of the wartime period receive excellent treatment, as does Herman Melville's underrated collection "Battle-Pieces:' The quirky Silas Weir Mitchell
, the doctor who established the term "shell-shock" is well covered here, including his even quirkier tale "The Case of George Dedlow"; and the book ends with a discussion of emerging views of Heaven and the afterlife (though I think even more theological insight on these matters could strengthen this section).
The book is divided into nine parts, covering; Contact, Pleasure, Pain, Male Bonding, Women's Touch, Control, Uncommon Touch, Tactile Therapies, and Touch and Technology, and each one is populated by writings from authors as diverse as Silas Weir Mitchell
(the nineteenth century neurologist who pioneered the 'rest cure method'), Donna Harraway and Klaus Theweleit.
The current 30th anniversary production of Inge's classic, directed by Silas Weir Mitchell
, more than keeps alive the company's tradition of quality.
