Waktu gue belum lulus, orang-orang bertanya kapan gue wisuda. Setelah gue lulus, mereka kembali bertanya kapan gue kerja. Terkadang, gue kehabisan akal untuk menjawabnya. Gue jadi selalu menyiapkan beberapa helai rumput di kantong kemeja, supaya gue bisa jawab, "Coba kita tanya pada rumput yang bergoyang," sambil ngejejelin rumput ke mulut mereka.

Seperti yang kalian tahu ketika membaca Catatan Akhir Kuliah sebelumnya, (Apa?! lo belum baca? Filmnya aja udah dirilis, tuh!) gue seorang mahasiswa kere, dengan orangtua kere, dan nilai jeblok. Gue jomblo dari orok, ditolak cewek mulu. TAPI GUE TETEP GANTENG, dan gue mencoba menjalani sisa hidup lewat pembuktian hipotesis-hipotesis umum, seperti, "nilai bagus tidak menjamin kesuksesan".

Di buku ini ada setumpuk pengalaman yang mau gue bagi, biar sebelum lulus, kamu sudah memiliki perencanaan yang matang seperti program KB, Kuliah Berencana, IPK 2 Lebih Baik. Karena hidup nggak akan selalu mulus seperti paha tanpa bulu kaki. Silakan tertawai, dan mungkin tanpa sadar, lo akan tahu bahwa lo sedang menertawai diri sendiri.

"Pengalaman berupa kegagalan ditolak berkali-kali yang bisa saja dialami oleh semua orang. Menyakitkan, tapi bisa melecut. Buku ini membuat saya tertawa dan sekaligus ... di situ saya kadang merasa sedih."

-Johansyah Jumberan, @joejuhdy, produser film Catatan Akhir Kuliah

"Gue terpikat pada kejenakaan ketika Sam berjuang melepas diri dari statusnya sebagai tuna-salary dengan caranya sendiri. Frankly and tasty!"
-Rons Imawan, @wowkonyol, penulis

"Sam mampu membawa saya ikut merasakan dunianya, yang realistis tapi dramatis, disampaikan dengan humor cerdas menghibur."
-Jay Sukmo, @jaysukmo, sutradara film Catatan Akhir Kuliah

From a small town in Mexico to the boardrooms of Big Pharma to main streets nationwide, an explosive and shocking account of addiction in the heartland of America.

In 1929, in the blue-collar city of Portsmouth, Ohio, a company built a swimming pool the size of a football field; named Dreamland, it became the vital center of the community. Now, addiction has devastated Portsmouth, as it has hundreds of small rural towns and suburbs across America--addiction like no other the country has ever faced. How that happened is the riveting story of Dreamland.

With a great reporter's narrative skill and the storytelling ability of a novelist, acclaimed journalist Sam Quinones weaves together two classic tales of capitalism run amok whose unintentional collision has been catastrophic. The unfettered prescribing of pain medications during the 1990s reached its peak in Purdue Pharma's campaign to market OxyContin, its new, expensive--extremely addictive--miracle painkiller. Meanwhile, a massive influx of black tar heroin--cheap, potent, and originating from one small county on Mexico's west coast, independent of any drug cartel--assaulted small town and mid-sized cities across the country, driven by a brilliant, almost unbeatable marketing and distribution system. Together these phenomena continue to lay waste to communities from Tennessee to Oregon, Indiana to New Mexico.

Introducing a memorable cast of characters--pharma pioneers, young Mexican entrepreneurs, narcotics investigators, survivors, and parents--Quinones shows how these tales fit together. Dreamland is a revelatory account of the corrosive threat facing America and its heartland.
