Pulitzer finalist and NYT bestselling author, Karen Russell, has a new story collection titled ORANGE WORLD. The title story was featured in The New Yorker’s 2018 summer fiction issue. Also her short novel SLEEP DONATION, which published digitally by Atavist Books in 2014, eliciting raves from NYT, LA Times, Entertainment Weekly, NPR and many other places. In SLEEP DONATION, set in a dystopian near future, a lethal plague of insomnia is spreading through the overstimulated, anxious population, leaving thousands of Americans unable to dream or sleep. Russell, who critics have called “one of the great American writers of our young century” (NPR), creates fantastical worlds that hum with recognizable rhythms. Knopf will publish ORANGE WORLD in May 2019.
