    Maker of Dreams - Creating Michael Jackson's “Neverland Valley Park"

    in Culture

    This book will help you "feel" what it was like to be a close and trusted friend of Michael’s, about living in “Neverland,” personally sharing some of his very private “life's footsteps,” and involved in creating a magical wonderland through Michael’s wonderful childlike vision. Rob and Michael truly “brought out the child” in each other… like the time they howled in unison at a full moon… a precursor to the inspiration for the Thriller album. 

    You’ll learn the stories behind the one ­of­ a ­kind Grand Carousel, 
    the Zipper ride, which Michael declared as his favorite (claimed the world record for longest ride!), and the Marionette installations in the theatre building… and the disappointment about the roller coaster that never came to fruition. 

    Michael called Rob Swinson his “Maker of Dreams” and by the time you finish this lavishly illustrated book, with almost two­hundred never before seen photos, you will salute Rob Swinson
    for his commitment and artistry in creating Michael Jackson's fabled “Neverland Valley Park.”

    Author Michaela Carter Discusses Further Out Than You Thought

    in Books

    Combining the eloquence and raw sensuality of Jeanette Winterson with the romantic, renegade spirit of Patti Smith, Further Out Than You Thought is a taut and erotically charged literary debut, set against the chaos of the 1992 L.A. riots, about three people searching for identity and meaning from award-winning poet and indie bookshop co-founder Michaela Carter.

    In the Neverland that is Los Angeles, where make-believe seems real, three dreamers find themselves on the verge of transformation. Twenty-five-year-old poet Gwendolyn Griffin works as a stripper to put herself through graduate school. Her perpetually stoned boyfriend Leo dresses in period costume to hawk his music downtown, and seems to be losing his already tenuous grip on reality. And their flamboyant best friend and neighbor, nightclub crooner Count Valiant, is slowly withering away.

    When the city explodes in violence after the Rodney King verdict, the chaos becomes a catalyst for change. Valiant is invigorated, Leo plans a new stunt—walking into east L.A., naked, holding a white flag—and Gwen, discovering she is pregnant, is confronted by troubling questions. Can Leo become a good, dependable father? Can she leave the club life behind, or will the city’s spell prove too seductive?

    Combining poetry and sensuality with an edgy urban sensibility, Further Out Than You Thought is a celebration of life and a haunting story of love, friendship, and one woman’s quest for redemption.
