The screenplay for this work is available from the author.


from a letter from reader:

"Thank you so much for the experience of WILD DREAMS OF REALITY. Your inscription read "Enjoy!" and I certainly did... I kept returning to it at every possible moment, like a starved creature on a midnight raid to the refrigerator, or a chocoholic pawing through a 2 lb. box of See's candies.
What a fun, intriguing and moving romp! I am struck by the honesty, the openness, the optimism and the wisdom of the novel, along with the humor, the great dialogues and the smart, detailed descriptive passages. It made me hungry for love, for life, for hope and for my own religion, hidden from me under some dust from my own non-use.
Thank you for allowing the reader to get under and inside Philip's skin and to join him on his grand journey."

-- Marcia Schwartz
