Tim Etchells' Dream Dictionary for the Modern Dreamer is at once a mischievous glimpse into the contemporary subconscious and a playful, irreverent portrait of 21st-century life. The dictionary concentrates on those aspects of contemporary life and dreaming, which other dictionaries have neglected. Rather than concentrate on those archetypal features of human existence (chairs, tables, fire, love and falling), The Dream Dictionary is the first significant reference work devoted to explaining the particular, the transitory and the specifically contemporary as in may appear in the world of our dreams. What is the meaning of a dream in which one touches, without meaning to, the hand of a fellow traveler on an underground train? What does it mean to dream of a telethon, a modem, or the former Soviet Union? Or that someone you love dearly is trying to barcode-scan your eyes? The Dream Dictionary will answer all these questions and more.
