Thursday Creativity Share: Dreamland

Our friend Sam Quinones is a fabulous writer and journalist.  Dreamland is his third book and it's all over the place.  Sam's book has been chosen as best book on the planet by everyone who has reviewed it.  And EVERYBODY has reviewed it.  And everybody has raved about it.

So you're wondering why I haven't featured Dreamland here on Thursday Creativity Share yet?  I'll explain this in one word:  jealousy.  I'm jealous of Sam and his success.  I've been struggling to write a book proposal for almost 2 years, and Sam just pops this runaway bestseller out overnight?  No sane person could argue that jealousy is anything but appropriate in this circumstance. Also, truth be told, I'm afraid that when I read Dreamland, I'll start wanting to try heroin and I don't have time for that right now.  In short, I've now ordered Dreamland (easy peasy lemon squeezey action to take) and I'm 110% positive I will love it.  You should read Dreamland if you want to.

Congratulations to Sam.  I'm getting over my jealousy as it's morphing gradually into super huge button popping pride.  DREAMLAND ROCKS.

Thursday Creativity Share is a wrap.  A brilliant book written by a good friend.  So exciting.

I am also jealous of Sam. Dammit, Sam! I'm sure the book is excellent. I look forward to the Leeway review. #saynotodrugs

I have to agree that you really don't have time for heroin, but I'm sure you have time to read the book.
