    Summary

    The story of how Eames and Arthur meet is one of the great legends of the dream-sharing profession.

    In it, there's a dark alley, a foreign country, a bar, a punch in the face, a loaded die, a poker chip, a three-piece suit, and a kiss. Not necessarily in that order. And not necessarily all the time.

    Summary

    “Wait,” Arthur says. “Repeat that.”

    “I got a Ph.D. in art,” Eames repeats dutifully.

    “Which means you’re Dr. Eames,” Arthur says, slowly. “D-R-Eames.”

    It hits Eames like a ton of bricks. His name is literally dreames.

    Or, when pronounced aloud, dreams.

     

    Arthur becomes possessed by an idea, a very simple idea, that changes everything. That their world isn't real. That they need to wake up to come back to reality. That, in order to get back home, they have to kill themselves.

    Summary

    Arthur is an assassin hired to kill a seemingly unremarkable English actor named Eames, but a chance meeting has Arthur falling for his target instead.

    Excerpt: None of this gave Arthur even an inkling as to why some very powerful people would pay a sizable sum to have the actor killed. From the carefree way Eames was going about his business as usual, Arthur would wager the actor had no idea that someone was at this very moment evaluating his life for the best possible chance to end it.

    Summary

    Bordeaux, so like Paris and yet so unlike any other place in the world in its narrow streets and soft-cornered architecture, casts romantic hues against his window, draping long, finger-like shadows through the length of his flat.

    He traces them with hooded eyes and thinks about impossible things: impossible people, impossible foods, impossible chefs and the impossible pleasure they get out of torturing innocent sommeliers.

    ***

    The one where Arthur's the new sommelier at a world-class French restaurant and Eames is the famous chef who makes Arthur's life impossible.

    Arthur grins, lazy and relaxed, and Eames thinks that maybe this is how people get through these things, tethered to one another when they can't hold on anywhere else.

    Summary

    The last time Yusuf saw Eames, it was at LAX, and he’d been whole and hearty. Excited, flushed with the adrenaline of doing the impossible by the skin of his crooked teeth. A good payout, too. That always did wonders for Eames’ complexion. Yusuf had given him a cheerful wave and a quick squeeze to the backside as he passed him on his way to his own terminal.

    Now, though. With a busted face in bloom with fresh colour, Yusuf refrains from saying anything until he helps Eames inside.
