The Dreamer by Rajeev Balasubramanyam
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In 1986, in Stonewall, Lancashire, Lisha doesn't know she's about to die. She doesn't know that in the darkness outside, three boys are circling her house with minds full of hate. And she doesn't know that, seventeen years into the future, a drunken actor lies unconscious in a London bedsit, fighting to save her life. A mind-bending portrait of post-traumatic breakdown, and a timely critique of our celebrity and success-based culture, The Dreamer is most of all a love story that unites Shashi and Lisha not only across time and space, but across death itself.
