The Dreamers

(2019)
A novel by

 
 
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.

Genre: Science Fiction

Praise for this book

"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

"A modern Midsummer Night’s Dream . . . In this wonderful novel, Walker paints a haunting canvas exploring time, memory, consciousness, and youth." - Marisha Pessl

"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

"The Dreamers is harrowing, riveting, profoundly moving, and beautifully written. In a word, this book is stunning." - Emily St. John Mandel
