9780099587347: Black Moon

".a black moon had risen, a sphere of sleeplessness that pulled at the tides of blood-and invisible explanation for the madness welling inside."

The world has stopped sleeping. Restless nights have grown into days of panic, delirium and, eventually, desperation. But few and far between, sleepers can still be found - a gift they quickly learn to hide. For those still with the ability to dream are about to enter a waking nightmare.

Matt Biggs is one of the few sleepers. His wife Carolyn however, no stranger to insomnia, is on the very brink of exhaustion. After six restless days and nights, Biggs wakes to find her gone. He stumbles out of the house in search of her to find a world awash with pandemonium, a rapidly collapsing reality. Sleep, it seems, is now the rarest and most precious commodity. Money can't buy it, no drug can touch it, and there are those who would kill to have it.

Kenneth Calhoun's dark, hallucinatory and brilliantly realised debut confronts one of our deepest needs - and fears - with style, vision and a very human heart.

Review:

"Extraordinary... Horribly, terribly compelling" (Alison Flood Sunday Times)

"A gripping read... This is a book that will get you thinking – and thanking your lucky stars for a good night's sleep... I loved it" (Jenny Green Sun)

"Calhoun’s prose is razor sharp, concise yet hauntingly descriptive... I wouldn’t be surprised if Black Moon turns out to be the best debut novel of 2014" (Jim Dempsey Bookmunch)

"The novel is a heart-stopping quest" (Guardian David Barnett)

"Calhoun vividly depicts the societal collapse that results when people are no longer able to differentiate dreaming from reality... Skilled and polished" (James Lovegrove Financial Times)

Book Description:

Imagine a world without sleep. A world driven to the brink of exhaustion. A waking nightmare.
