Praise for The Dream Maker

The Dream Maker brings to vivid life the exmplary career of a little known medieval paragon, Jacques Coeur, banker, visionary and crafter of the glory that was France.”
—The Barnes & Noble Review

The Dream Maker blends with skill and efficiency politics, business, travel and love. All of this written in a classic, elegant prose, of which Jean-Christophe Rufin has long had a command.”

“Rufin bestows such immediacy to this artist of finance, such vitality that we hear the sound of Coeur’s own voice telling us his life.”

“In this time of the dehumanization of the economy and forced globalization, Jean-Christophe Rufin offers his readers a return to the origins, to when commerce was considered one of man’s most beautiful accomplishments, to a time when the wildest dreamer could be a wealthy merchant—Jacques Coeur, the treasurer poet.”
—Philippe Chevilley, Les Echos

“Jean-Christophe Rufin has re-established his eloquence and spirit, that of the great novelist of the people, which…enchants his readers. His new novel is both a chivalric odyssey and a brilliant reflection on power.”
