9780099520757: How the Dead Dream

An only child in a typical middle-American family, T is unusual only in his interest in, and talent for, making money. As his peers go through teen crises, T accumulates, and turns himself into a successful businessman.

But T's material life begins to change after he adopts a dog, meets a girl, and takes his mother in after she splits up with his father. But when events conspire to leave T isolated again he starts to lose faith in people and civilisation and turns to nature instead, developing a strange and powerful obsession with endangered animals...

Review:

"The finest book yet by one of my favourite contemporary American writers" (Jonathan Lethem)

"Permeated with a dark, irreverent humour" ( Financial Times)

"Odd and compelling...surprising and funny...Millet is an interesting thinker" ( Guardian)

"Bewitching" ( Scotland on Sunday)

"Sad, strange and as jumpily shocking as an electric fence, How The Dead Dream brilliantly evokes a barren world in which human loneliness and environmental loss are inevitable consequences when a culture values capitalism over compassion" ( Metro)

Book Description:

A brilliant, moving satire about human loneliness and endangered species, from one of America's most exciting voices.
