Dream Junkies
 

Authored by Alexandra Ares

Kitty Roman is a disenchanted New York immigrant who takes on the trip of her life when Desert Rose, an eccentric artist, asks her to fly with her to California to help her make a long awaited move on the man she loves.
The two New Yorkers with outrageously different views about love and life, embark on a picaresque, funny and touching trip to the West coast that will take unexpected turns and change everything.
A novel about love, friendship, exile, estrangement, hope and deception, Dream Junkies presents an America where the chimerical chase painfully contrasts with the difficult realities of life. Kitty Roman and Desert Rose, the two main characters of the novel, take us on a fascinating journey through the heart of the American Dream, from New York, filled with intellectual and artistic elites, to glamorous Los Angeles with its movie moguls and bohemian art community. Although they have different backgrounds, hopes, and ambitions, at the end of the road they find their own passion. A page turner in which self-irony and lucidity blend wonderfully with lyrical interludes, Dream Junkies offers the reader a bittersweet view of the American Dream.
