The kin of Ata live only for the dream. Their work, their art, their love are designed in and by their dreams, and their only aim is to dream higher dreams. Into the world of Ata comes a desperate man, who is first subdued and then led on the spiritual journey that, sooner or later, all of us must make. The Kin of Ata Are Waiting for You is part love story, part science fiction, at once Jungian myth and utopian allegory.
The Kin of Ata are Waiting for You (1971) is the second novel by Dorothy Bryant. It deals with the idea of how the negation of dreams as a guide to life affects the real world. Author Alice Walker has described it as "one of my favorite books in all the world".
The book has been cited in a number of academic articles and text-books in the fields of philosophy, psychology, and law.
