Raymond Chandler meets Jonathan Lethem in this wickedly entertaining debut featuring Mark Genevich, Narcoleptic DetectiveMark Genevich is a South Boston P.I. with a little problem: heâ€TMs narcoleptic, and he suffers from the most severe symptoms, including hypnogogic hallucinations. These waking dreams wreak havoc for a guy who depends on real-life clues to make his living.Clients havenâ€TMt exactly been beating down the door when Mark meets Jennifer Timesâ€"daughter of the powerful local D.A. and a contestant on American Starâ€"who walks into his office with an outlandish story about a man who stole her fingers.

Review:

"Rejoice, Chandler fans. The Little Sleep is as bitingly sardonic as it is hardboiled. Like Jonathan Lethem in Motherless Brooklyn, Paul Tremblay slices, dices and spins the neo-noir his own strange way and delivers a fast, smart, and completely satisfying read." --Stewart O'Nan, author of A Night at the Lobster. A Prayer for the Dying, and The Speed Queen

"I picked up The Little Sleep, planning to just read a few pages, knowing full well I didn't have time to dip into it. Several hours later I was closing the book with a satisfied grin. The best thing I can say about this is the classic 'I couldn't put it down' and mean it. It's original and different, and yet somehow good kin folk to what has gone before in the tradition of Raymond Chandler." --Joe R. Lansdale, author of Lost Echoes and The Bottoms
