From Grace, was just released in February 2016. Esther's day job is

What do the worlds we invent tell us about our own world? We all understand escapism in fantasy or utopian stories, but is it as simple as that? Is Lord of the Rings escapist? What about dystopian or horror or Game of Thrones? Why are we attracted to this stuff and what does it say about us?
