Home Was a Dream

Home Was a Dream

The initial seed that grew into Home Was a Dream—the third in what is now officially a series of Tim Green novels—was a reader’s comment that they wished the second book had featured “more about Bernie,” protagonist Tim Green’s music-writer father.

Over the past several weeks in this space we’ve explored the roots and branches of the new novel, from that initial seed to my realization that Bernie got into rock and roll as a way of rebelling against an overbearing father, to my further realization that Bernie’s father Max (Tim’s grandfather) was a Jewish teenager during World War II, suggesting a trajectory for the story that was at once both daunting and compelling.

More recently we’ve delved into the origins of the book’s title (thank you, Jason Isbell). We’ve told the story behind the superb cover designed by my friend Jean-Paul Vest. We’ve shared an in-depth conversation with fellow novelist Peter McDade about Home Was a Dream and the creative process behind it. And we’ve shared an excerpt from the book.

Finally, you can find a summary of the story and several very kind blurbs on our Home Was a Dream page. With that, here are the words we’ve all been waiting for:
