Author Skip Press said: "In America we take so many things for granted, and the most consequential things can seem so mundane. We are isolated from the grueling realities of other parts of the world, where people mean things when they say them, because their very survival might be at stake. Reading the correspondence of Alan C. Baird and Anikó J. Bartos, and watching the development of their co-written screenplay across the Internet, with accompanying commentary on each of the participants' lives, loves and longings, one can't help but feel a little better about the world, and our possibilities. May many more flowers like this one come to bloom."

ALSO: This project recently appeared in the Whitney Museum's Biennial Exhibition, and articles about it were published in British and Danish screenwriting magazines. It was even pitched on this DVD! The book's short stories and nonfiction pieces have been featured by periodicals on five continents, in seven countries: Australia, Canada, France, India, Ireland, South Africa, and America (including the world's foremost soaring journal).

ONE LAST TOOT: This book contains the novella version of another screenplay which later reached the quarterfinals in American Zoetrope's competition.
