April 25 we’ll be on Mindy Todd’s Cape Cod and Islands NPR show The Point discussing books with librarian Jill Erickson. This month’s theme: dreams. Any suggestions? Novels where dreams are important? Books that appeared in the dreams of the writers? Nonfiction about the science of dreams? Dream interpretation? Maybe just a funny dream of your own that I’ll describe on the show in order to evade the real subject. Think!

    Good morning everyone. Dreams? What a topic! A couple of things came to mind: 1) Field of Dreams (Okay, so it is a movie), 2) The Wish by Ronald Dahl, 3) The Secret Life of Walter Mitty by James Thurber. We know there are about a bazillion more but our pea brain is stuck thinking about these.
    Have a super Saturday.

    The first line of Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier is “Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.”

    Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein was based on a dream.

    The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson was based on a dream.

    I’ve always interpreted Kafka’s Metamorphosis as depicting a dream.

    This is fun.

    Good morning all.

    Here’s one of my own dreams…I do not drive. Whenever I dream about driving, I am always crashing the car I am in. Heh!
