Renee Di Pilato, Sarasota County Director of Libraries & Historical Resources, interviews local Author Rick Moskovitz.
Rick Moskovitz is a Harvard educated psychiatrist who taught psychotherapy and spent nearly four decades listening to his patients tell their stories. After leaving practice, he in turn became a storyteller, writing science fiction that explores the psychological consequences of living in a world of expanding possibilities.
His "Brink of Life Trilogy" begins with the quest for immortality in the mid-21st century and concludes with a search for the origin of human life.
In "Shared Madness" he returned to his roots as a psychiatrist to write a first person tale of a psychiatrist who, while treating a psychotic patient, descends into madness and finds himself at the nexus of a deadly mystery.
"Carousel Music" explores his fascination with the subjective and malleable nature of memory and how our memories create the narrative of our identities.
