A gifted filmmaker, opening worlds we’ve never seen before.

Books by Ric Gibbs

After 20 years as a dramatist and screenwriter, Ric Gibbs made a startling discovery: the myths and heroes that were underlying his fictional characters, were inhabiting his real life as well. Quick, Where’s My Cape? is a riveting exploration of the unconscious stories that shape our lives, and the steps we can take to draw power from them – to draw sword from stone, as it were – and live the lives we are meant to live.
