Dreams and Schemes: My Decade of Fun in the Sun is a collection of Lopez's most controversial, irreverent, trouble-making, and heart-warming columns. He writes through the eyes of the region and its people, unflinchingly taking on the movers and shakers, and poking about in places where other reporters wouldn t dare go.

Whether read straight through, read at random, or read aloud to share with someone, the columns will amuse and enlighten all readers
