9780140250831: The House of Sleep

Sarah is narcoleptic. Her inability to distinguish between dreams and waking reality gives rise to many misunderstandings. For Terry, a disillusioned film critic, sleep is merely a memory. For Dr Dunstan, sleep is nothing less than a global disease. Constructed to reflect the different stages of sleep, "The House of Sleep" is a brilliant and original comedy about the powers we acquire - and those we relinqish - when we fall asleep, and when we fall in love. "It must be one of the best books of the year" - Malcolm Bradbury in "The Times."

Review:

Moving, clever, pleasurable, smart ... one of the best books of the year (Malcolm Bradbury The Times)

There are bits that make you laugh out loud and others which make your heart ache ( Guardian)

Fiercely clever, witty, wise, hopeful ... a compellingly beautiful tale of love and loss ( Times Literary Supplement)

Remarkable ... a wonderful bedtime read ( Sunday Times)
