The Dreamseller: The Revolution

A Novel

International bestseller AUGUSTO CURY returns with this enlightening fable about the mysterious dreamseller who continues to touch lives.

The Dreamseller, a philosopher dressed in rumpled clothes, travels the country gathering followers and delivering lessons to those in despair. In this uplifting journey, the Dreamseller demonstrates that societies are comprised of anonymous heroes who go unrecognized for their deeds: cancer patients who fight for their lives like warriors, parents who exhaust their bodies and minds to support and educate their children, and teachers who, despite low wages, enhance the minds of their students. The Dreamseller: The Revolution reveals that the history of mankind is complex: written with tears and joy, tranquillity and anxiety, sanity and madness. Moving, entertaining and inspiring, The Dreamseller: The Revolution leaves readers with a new perspective on life.

A Controversial and Surprising Man

WE WERE LIVING IN A TIME WHEN PEOPLE, DEVOID OF creativity and caught in a web of sameness, were overly predictable. Actors and actresses, show business personalities, politicians, religious leaders, executives of large corporations—all were tiring, boring and often insufferable. They were repetitious in their worn-out jargon. They neither appealed to emotion nor inspired the intellect. They needed a marketing strategy and a media makeover to repackage them and render them interesting. Even young people no longer had any enthusiasm for their idols.
