Wikipedia on author Michael Connelly

Connelly had planned on following his father’s early choice of
career in building construction and started out at the 
University of Florida in Gainesville as a building construction major.
After earning grades that were lower than expected, Connelly went
to see Robert Altman’s film The Long Goodbye (1973) and was
enchanted by what he saw. The film, based on Raymond Chandler’s 
1953 novel of the same name, inspired Connelly to want to become
a mystery writer. Connelly went home and read all of Chandler's
works featuring Philip Marlowe, a detective in Los Angeles during
the 1940s and ‘50s, and decided to switch majors to journalism with
a minor in creative writing.[4] He was a student of Harry Crews.

Expanding the Seagram Spielraum

From the previous post, Expanding the Spielraum

"The knights and squires of nearby Ambras used to let their
steeds romp here, whence came the name Tummelplatz ." 

— Quelle: Ludwig von Hörmann, "Der Tummelplatz  bei Amras,"

Halloween meditation  on  the Tummelplatz  at Innsbruck

"Die Ritter und Knappen des nahegelegenen Ambras
pflegten hier ihre Rosse zu tummeln, woher sich auch
der Name Tummelplatz  schreibt."

"The knights and squires of nearby Ambras used to let their
steeds romp here, whence came the name Tummelplatz ." 

— Quelle: Ludwig von Hörmann, "Der Tummelplatz  bei Amras,"
in: Der Alpenfreund , 1. Band, Gera 1870, S. 72 – 73.

See as well Sigmund Freud, Erinnern, Wiederholen und Durcharbeiten
(1914) —

"Wir eröffnen ihm die Übertragung als den Tummel­platz ,
auf dem ihm gestattet wird, sich in fast völliger Freiheit
zu entfalten, und auferlegt ist, uns alles vorzuführen,
was sich an pathogenen Trieben im Seelenleben des
Analysierten verborgen hat."

"We admit it into the transference as a playground
in which it is allowed to expand in almost complete freedom
and in which it is expected to display to us everything in the
way of pathogenic instincts that is hidden in the patient's mind."

This passage has been discussed by later psychotherapists,
notably Russell Meares.  Dr. Meares, working from a translation
that has "playground" for Freud's Tummelplatz , uses Spielraum  
in place of Freud's own word.
