Pulitzer finalist and NYT bestselling author Karen Russell‘s short novel SLEEP DONATION will be published by Vintage in 2020. Published digitally by Atavist Books in 2014, it elicited 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.
