A book by Hunter S. Thompson.
Dreamseller is the autobiography of Brandon Novak, ex-professional skateboarder turner addict. Brandon is best known for his recurring roles in any and everything done by Bam Margera. The story covers Novak's entire life- childhood on. It's not pretty, it's not censored, and it's not something you'll necessarily enjoy word for word. It's powerful and honest, which is something a lot of celebrities (or would-be celebs) are not today. Novak's constantly recovering and relapsing in his addiction to heroin. The story shows him at his highest achievements- traveling the US on a skateboarding tour with legend Tony Hawk, and slumming, homeless and high, in the streets of Baltimore, MD- his home town. The story gives you an insight into the mind of a true addict. Parts will make you miserable, parts will make you sick, and other parts will make you sympathize and be grateful you didn't wind up in the situations he has. This book has a much more adult feel- it’s graphic and it’s definitely not friendly for those below the teenage years. The best thing you can take out of this book other than an understanding, is an example not to follow. Even the author himself realizes how screwed up his life is, and he portrays that quite well.
