Sam Quinones is a journalist, author, and storyteller whose tow acclaimed books of narrative nonfiction about Mexico and Antonio's Gun and Delfino's Dream- have made him, according to the San Francisco Chronicle Book Review, " the most original writer on Mexico and the border." He writes Dreamland: A Reporter's Blog, and edits Tell Your True Tale, a storytelling page. Dreamland - with this great reporter's narrative skill and storytelling ability of a novelist, acclaimed journalist Sam Quinones weaves together two tales of capitalism catastrophically run amok. The unfettered prescribing of pain medications during the 1990s reached it's peak in Purdue Pharma's campaign to market Oxycontin, it's new, expensive-extremely addictive-miracle painkiller. Meanwhile, a massive influx of black tar heroin-cheap, potent, and originating from one small county on Mexico's west coast, independent of any drug cartel-assaulted small towns and midsize cities across the country, driven by a brilliant, almost unbeatable marketing and distribution system. Together these phenomena continue to lay waste to communities from Tennessee to Oregon, Indiana to New Mexico. - A book every American should read -
