Dancing The Dream

Formats & editions

Reissue of Michael Jackson’s second book, first published in 1992.

‘People ask me how I make music. I tell them I just step into it. It’s like stepping into a
river and joining the flow. Every moment in the river has its song. So, I stay in the
moment and listen.’
MICHAEL JACKSON (1958 – 2009)
Dancing the Dream is one man’s hauntingly beautiful, provocatively personal view of the
world around us, and the universe within each of us. Whether his prose and poetry
focussed on creativity, the people that surrounded him, or the plight of the noble
elephant, his observations and concerns all illustrated his belief that trust, love and faith
are the foundation stones for a life well lived.
Containing Michael Jackson’s personal writings and over one hundred glorious
photographs, drawings, and paintings from his own collection, this book is a must have
for all fans of an incredible, inspiring man who died as he lived – dancing his dream.
