In this groundbreaking exploration of the brain, dreams, and neurology, the reader is thrust into the dark corners and hidden pathways of human consciousness. The Chronicle of Stolen Dreams ($14.95) is alternately profound, hilarious, and provocative as it poses theories of human behavior that challenge all accepted wisdom. The book is part Vonnegut, part Rushdie, part Chabon, and entirely Tarnoff as the author of The Bone Man of Benares and The Thousand Year Journey of Tobias Parker pushes into a whole new universe of ideas. The summer of 1947 will never again be seen the same way.
Terry Tarnoff's first book, The Bone Man of Benares, was published by St. Martin’s Press. A one-man show adapted from that book was produced later that year by the Encore Theatre Company in San Francisco. His second book, The Thousand Year Journey of Tobias Parker, was published earlier this year. Terry lives in San Francisco with his wife, artist Tina Tarnoff.
