WIN! A copy of the new edition of “A Book of Dreams” by Peter Reich

A Book of Dreams

‘Cloudbusting’ was inspired by a book that I found in a shop …Written by a guy called Peter Reich, and it’s called A Book of Dreams. And it’s a very unusual, beautiful book, written by this man through the eyes of himself when he was a child, looking at his father, and the very special relationship between them. His father meant so much to him. – Kate Bush

Anyone who attended Kate’s Before the Dawn concerts in London last year will have witnessed the jubilant live performance of Cloudbusting that closed each evening’s show. As most of you will know, this powerful and enduring classic song is inspired by “A Book of Dreams“, written by Peter Reich, about his father, the brilliant but persecuted Austrian psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich.

The book has just been republished with a new introduction by Peter Reich, and a still of Kate on the cloudbuster adorning the cover. It has been out of print and very difficult to obtain for over twenty years.
