Bookclub Guide

Pipe Dreams - Book One is the first of a three book series. Stanley Walker, the author, resides in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. He says, "My dream will not be complete until I can do something for my community. The book is designed to make people aware of the growing drug problem in a story form." He feels, "Stories and movies do a better job of getting the point across." Pipe Dreams - Book One offers a creative work of fiction based on facts that interweaves elements of intrigue and complex human drama into a descriptive narrative. Centered on a man named Jerry, the saga unfolds as he loses his job and begins a downward spiral into the seedy world of crack. Jerry decides to start selling the drug so that he can make a lot of money. An evocative sequence of events ensues as Faye, Jerry’s lover, becomes caught up in the drug culture also. Fast-paced twists, dangerous situations and pathos combine to render an original and brilliantly detailed study of the toll that crack takes on the lives of those who cannot escape its grip. The author’s intricate design, realistic dialogue, vivid descriptions, and multi-dimensional characterizations contribute to the imaginative nature of this chronicle.
