More than 60 fantastic short stories, suitable as bedtime reading.
Dreams are the best stories – at least according to surrealist views, if not always substantiated by convincing examples. Where Breton & Co. – not to forget Freud – unarguably had a point, though: dreams are indeed an unfathomable source of ludicrous humour and absurd ideas, which only need to be given the right shape.
Fian’s first-rate dreams turned into first-rate short stories contain everything we love in our sleep productions, ranging from executions and disasters to sexual bizarreness and the fulfilment of very special wishes.
