Sarah, who is narcoleptic, has always found sleep a confusing state. 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, as he yearns for the tantalizing dreams he used to enjoy. For Dr Dunstan, sleep is nothing less than a global disease. Constructed to reflect the different stages of sleep, haunted by forgotten dreams and lost moveis, The House of Sleep is a brilliant and original comedy about the powers we acquire - and those we relinquish - when we fall asleep, and when we fall in love.

Review:

"Intricately plotted and ingeniously constructed. . . . A deft satire . . . a strange and poignant love story." --The Wall Street Journal

"Often disconcerting, sometimes moving, frequently funny. . . . Coe eviscerates the bottom-liners with hilarious bare-toothed ferocity." --The Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Jonathan Coe has written a witty, engaging romance that reinvigorates the old saw that life is a dream." --The New York Times Book Review

"An epic farce fueled by romance and satire. . . . It is also a hilarious and deeply touching tale. . . .Love, tenderness, affection: The House of Sleep glows with these qualities, and exalts them." --San Francisco Chronicle
