What Dreams May Come
BlurbWhat Dreams May Come is a 1978 novel by Richard Matheson. The plot centers on Chris, a man who dies then goes to Heaven, but descends into Hell to rescue his wife. It was adapted in 1998 into the Academy Award-winning film What Dreams May Come starring Robin Williams, Cuba Gooding, Jr., and Annabella Sciorra.
Matheson stated in an interview, "I think What Dreams May Come is the most important book I've written. It has caused a number of readers to lose their fear of death – the finest tribute any writer could receive."
In an introductory note, Matheson explains that the characters are the only fictional component of the novel. Almost everything else is based on research, and the end of the novel includes a lengthy bibliography.
