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. What is the meaning of a dream in which one touches, without meaning to, the hand of a fellow traveller 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 sets out to answer all these questions and more.
