              From the New York Times bestselling author of The Age of Miracles comes a mesmerizing novel about a town transformed by a mysterious sickness that locks victims in perpetual sleep and triggers extraordinary, life-altering dreams. One night in an isolated college town in the hills... of Southern California, a first-year student stumbles into her dorm room, falls asleep--and doesn't wake up. She sleeps through the morning, into the evening. Her roommate, Mei, cannot rouse her. Neither can the paramedics who carry the girl away, nor the perplexed doctors at the hospital. Then a second girl falls asleep, and then a third, and panic takes hold of the college and spreads to the town. As the number of cases multiplies, classes are canceled. A quarantine is established. Mei, an outsider in the hierarchy of dorm life, finds herself thrown together with an eccentric, idealistic classmate. A psychiatrist summoned from Los Angeles attempts to make sense of the phenomenon as it spreads. Those infected, she discovers, are displaying unusual levels of brain activity, higher than has ever been recorded before. They are dreaming heightened dreams--but of what? Gorgeously written, The Dreamers is a breathtaking novel, startling and provocative, about the possibilities contained within a human life--in our waking days and, perhaps even more, in our dreams. Advance praise for The Dreamers 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 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 What a book!
