    You know when you read a book and you know that at least 50% of the symbolism, comparisons, philosophy and psychology went over your head That s what Mapping the Interior felt like to me I know there is obviously a lot of importance and density to this novella but ask me to explain it or pull out snippets and I struggle knowing I missed a lot of somethings I can t articulateThere are rules, I know Not knowing them doesn t mean they don t apply to you.This is a story of a Native American bo You know when you read a book and you know that at least 50% of the symbolism, comparisons, philosophy and psychology went over your head That s what Mapping the Interior felt like to me I know there is obviously a lot of importance and density to this novella but ask me to explain it or pull out snippets and I struggle knowing I missed a lot of somethings I can t articulateThere are rules, I know Not knowing them doesn t mean they don t appl...
