In this extraordinary book, Kevin Starr–widely acknowledged as the premier historian of California, the scope of whose scholarship the Atlantic Monthly has called “breathtaking”–probes the possible collapse of the California dream in the years 1990—2003. In a series of compelling chapters, Coast of Dreams moves through a variety of topics that show the California of the last decade, when the state was sometimes stumbling, sometimes humbled, but, more often, flourishing with its usual panache. From gang violence in Los Angeles to the spectacular rise–and equally spectacular fall–of Silicon Valley, from the Northridge earthquake to the recall of Governor Gray Davis, Starr ranges over myriad facts, anecdotes, news stories, personal impressions, and analyses to explore a time of unprecedented upheaval in California. Coast of Dreams describes an exceptional diversity of people, cultures, and values; an economy that mirrors the economic state of the nation; a battlefield where industry and the necessities of infrastructure collide with the inherent demands of a unique and stunning natural environment. It explores California politics (including Arnold Schwarzenegger’s election in the 2003 recall), the multifaceted business landscape, and controversial icons such as O. J. Simpson. “Historians of the future,” Starr writes, “will be able to see with more certainty whether or not the period 1990-2003 was not only the end of one California but the beginning of another”; in the meantime, he gives a picture of the place and time in a book at once sweeping and riveting in its details, deeply informed, engagingly personal, and altogether fascinating.

Winner of the Edna Ferber Prize Long-listed for the 2014 Flaherty-Dunnan First Novel Prize “A sly, promising and ambitious debut.” —Publishers Weekly “Chloe Benjamin is a great new talent.” —Lorrie Moore, author of Bark: Stories It’s 1998, and Sylvie Patterson, a bookish student at a Northern California boarding school, falls in love with a spirited, elusive classmate named Gabe. Their headmaster, Dr. Adrian Keller, is a charismatic medical researcher who has staked his career on the therapeutic potential of lucid dreaming: By teaching his patients to become conscious during sleep, he helps them to relieve stress and heal from trauma. Over the next six years, Sylvie and Gabe become consumed by Keller’s work, following him from the redwood forests of Eureka, California, to the enchanting New England coast. But when an opportunity brings the trio to the Midwest, Sylvie and Gabe stumble into a tangled relationship with their mysterious neighbors—and Sylvie begins to doubt the ethics of Keller’s research, recognizing the harm that can be wrought under the guise of progress. As she navigates the hazy, permeable boundaries between what is real and what isn’t, who can be trusted and who cannot, Sylvie also faces surprising developments in herself: an unexpected infatuation, growing paranoia, and a new sense of rebellion. In stirring, elegant prose, Benjamin’s tale exposes the slippery nature of trust—and the immense power of our dreams.

Shemar Manziato was meant to be born in our world. Due to some unfortunate circumstances1 he didn't even have the chance to be born. At least, not in this world. When he died, his soul went to another world1where he was reincarnated into someone else. The world where his soul went to was benign and moralous, with no crime, immorality, hate or any negativity. Shemar's soul was from our world, full of imperfections and impurities that were foreign to that world. Problems arose because of this and some sorcerers, who only practiced good magic, sent him back to our world. There were adjustments galore for Shemar to make when he returned to our world, a place he'd only seen in his dreams. In his world, everyone was black and only spoke English. Here, he sees a conglomerate of races and hears people speaking so many different languages. He finds the people he was supposed to have grown up with in this world and they help him to adjust. Without trying, Shemar helps them to find their way in life, setting them down the right path instead of the destructive one that they were on.

You’ve got the best life coach imaginable talking to you in your sleep. “Dream work is a very personal process. There is no Rosetta Stone for interpreting dreams, no universal meaning for every dream symbol,” says reddit.com dreams forum moderator DeBord. But don’t let that scare you. With a few simple tools, you will soon be on your way to discovering just how much specific, guiding wisdom is packed into your dreams. This groundbreaking book takes you step-by-step through the process of learning the language of your dreams. It is a language like any other. It has nouns (characters and settings), verbs (actions and your reactions), and adjectives (symbols and feelings). At first you may only catch the simple words and phrases, then whole sentences and paragraphs, but soon enough you will get all the subtext, humor, irony, and slang. You will not only understand the language but speak it fluently. You’ll see that we dream to help reconcile with the past, handle the present, and step into the future. Three steps: remember, interpret, and live your dreams. It’s easier than you think.
