Publisher's Description

Wherever he goes, the dreamseller enchants, stirs up trouble and inspires his listeners to search for the most important thing: the heart of the human soul. Every person he meets is someone who has abandoned their dreams and is struggling through life: a professor who has stopped pursuing his passions, an alcoholic who has no family, the elderly who have lost their zest for life. Through his questioning and wisdom, the dreamseller helps them to look into their silent hearts and get to the root of their unhappiness.

The Dreamseller: The Calling is moving, entertaining and ultimately inspiring. This book will make you laugh and cry, but above all, it will make you reflect on the purpose of your life, value others and become empowered to believe in your dreams.

Publisher's Weekly

Psychiatrist Cury's fourth novel combines social commentary and philosophy with a liberal dose of absurdist humor. Julio Lambert stands on the ledge of a 20-story building poised to jump when he's suddenly joined by a mysterious, disheveled stranger, a "dreamseller," whose mission is to convince people to love life. A philosophical dialogue follows as the stranger talks Julio down from the ledge and invites him to become a dreamseller. At first Julio views the journey as a "sociological experiment," but he soon begins to believe. Others join, and the "band of misfits" under the tutelage of the dreamseller visit sites as diverse as an electronics expo, a retirement home, and a funeral, delivering a lesson each place. Citing inspiration from the Magna Carta, Socrates, and Jesus Christ, the dreamseller points out the madness in modern society and invites others to embrace his ideals. As his influence grows, detractors emerge, but he has an answer for everyone, until Megasoft, the corporate monolith and a favorite target of the dreamseller, forces him into a corner. The dreamseller occasionally veers into heavy-handed, preachy territory, and the story's big twist isn't hard to figure out, but Cury's fresh voice and sense of humor keep the platitudes and biblical allegory from overwhelming the delightful story.
