Mr. Wilson's Cabinet of Wonder, Lawrence Weschler, 1997

I've read over half that list.

I partnered with a guy in college to produce a multimedia stage show based on Jaynes' Bicameral Mind. Played Suffragette City in the obligatory house band. Weird. I don't miss manual typewriting stage directions.

He's only got one eye, how does he read both sides of the pages? Does he read the odd pages first and then turn the book upside-down, invert his vision with a corrective lens and then read the even pages, all the time remembering the plot development from the previously read odd pages?
Also, no Burroughs?

For fark's sake, link to the actual article.  Enough with the excerpt/ad-revenue-passing circlejerk.
