?`The Dreamers is harrowing, riveting, profoundly moving, and beautifully written. In a word, this book is stunning' Emily St. John Mandel, author of Station Eleven

~*~The eagerly awaited new novel from the author of The Age of Miracles~*~

Imagine a world where sleep could trap you, for days, for weeks, months... A world where you could, even, die of sleep rather than in your sleep.

Karen Thompson Walker's second novel is stunning, the story of a Californian town's epidemic of perpetual sleep.

Praise for The Dreamers:
`A modern Midsummer Night's Dream . . . In this wonderful novel, Walker paints a haunting canvas exploring time, memory, consciousness, and youth' Marisha Pessl, author of Night Film

`Frighteningly powerful, beautiful, and uncanny, The Dreamers is a love story and also a horror story - a symphonic achievement, alternating intimate moments with a panoramic capture of a crisis in progress' Karen Russell, author of Vampires in the Lemon Grove: And Other Stories

`What a book! I read The Dreamers in a dream of sorts myself, entirely transported into Karen Thompson Walker's world of mysterious tragedy and infinite, if unexpected, compassion. This is a profound novel, and a deeply moving one. How she takes a terrifying situation and reveals it as a thing of beauty, a lesson in the human spirit, is a mystery to me, but she does exactly that, and fortunate readers will celebrate this extraordinary book' Robin Black, author of Life Drawing

Praise for The Age of Miracles:
`A beautifully observed coming-of-age tale in the great American tradition ... nimble, delicate and emotionally sophisticated' Observer

`Hauntingly believable ... an impressive and quietly terrifying book' Sunday Times

'Karen Thompson Walker's debut novel is a stunner from the first page - an end-of-the-world, coming-of-age tale of quiet majesty. I loved this novel and can't wait to see what this remarkable writer will do next' Justin Cronin, author of The Passage

'What a remarkable, beautifully wrought novel' Curtis Sittenfeld

'Brought to mind Alice Sebbold's The Lovely Bones' The Times
