Real Dreams  is respectfully dedicated to those many Americans who continue to struggle for justice and equality against all the odds in a land, long mad, whose Dream has by now become, almost literally, the rest of the world’s nightmare; and if to one in particular, to the friend, comrade and writer of promise who gave me his story.”  (Trevor Griffiths, 1987)
