Book Overview

[I] just read How the Dead Dream and was completely transported. Two months later it still occupies the spot of the best book I ve read since the last time I read a book so good. --Jonathan Lethem

As a wealthy, young real-estate developer in Los Angeles, T. lives an isolated life. He has always kept his distance from people from his doting mother to his crass fraternity brothers but remains unaware of his loneliness until one night, while driving to Las Vegas, he hits a coyote on the highway. The experience unnerveshim and inspires a spiritual transformation that leads T. to question his financial pursuits for the first time in his life, to finally take a chanceat fallingin love, and to begin sneaking into the local zoo, where he finds solace in the presence of endangered species. A beautiful, heart-wrenching tale, How the Dead Dreamis also a riveting commentary on community in the modern suburban landscape and how the lives of animals are affected by it. The writing is always flawlessly beautiful, reaching for an experience that precedes language itself. How the Dead Dream is a quirky, discursive portrait of one man s evolving consciousness about success, love, kinship, and planetary responsibility.[A] provocative odyssey. Boston Sunday Globe
