2018 Summer Read
Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic

Dreamland Book CoverIn 1929, in the blue-collar city of Portsmouth, Ohio, a company built a swimming pool the size of a football field; named Dreamland, it became the vital center of the community. Now, addiction has devastated Portsmouth, as it has hundreds of small rural towns and suburbs across America—addiction like no other the country has ever faced. How that happened is the riveting story of Dreamland: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic.

Written by Sam Quinones, this book weaves together two riveting tales of capitalism run amok whose unintentional collision has been a catastrophic opiate epidemic.

Introducing a memorable cast of characters—pharma pioneers, young Mexican entrepreneurs, narcotics investigators, survivors, and parents —Quinones shows how these tales fit together.

Dreamland is a revelatory account of the corrosive threat facing America and its heartland.
