`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 

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
