9780099494157: Sleepwalking

Susan finds her year-old marriage to Alistair less than ideal. Just as she contemplates leaving him, she discovers that she is pregnant with his child. As she grapples with this news, she learns that her loathed father has killed himself. Left confused and bereft by these developments and haunted by visions of a little boy, she meets a seductive young painter and, despite knowing it could lead to crisis, begins an affair with him in her eighth month of pregnancy. Told with an eye for startling details and an unerring sense for psychological truth, this harrowing, passionate, obsessively compelling literary debut captures the reality of a young woman's inner landscape while spinning a tale that will hypnotise readers to its last satisfying pages.

From the Publisher:

A harrowing, passionate, obsessively compelling novel about a young woman's sensual liberation--an astonishing literary debut. Julie Myerson proves herself a talent like no other in this extraordinary first novel. Told with an eye for startling details and an unerring sense of psychological truth, Sleepwalking is the story of Susan, a young woman who has seemingly drifted through her life-first in a childhood marked by a remote and unhappy father, then in her marriage to the unimpeachable Alistair. Pregnancy is simply further evidence for her of her inability to take control. When her father commits suicide, however, she discovers that the resolution to her unhappiness lies within her own dark and complex family history. And in an unorthodox, potentially destructive move, she begins an affair in her eighth month of pregnancy with the sexually enticing artist Lenny. As her life heads toward its inevitable crisis, she surprises herself with a courage--and a capacity to love--that she never suspected she had. Written in breathtaking bursts of meticulous prose, Sleepwalking is a novel that bravely, sensitively, captures the reality of a woman's inner landscape while spinning a tale that will hypnotize readers until its last satisfying pages.

About the Author:

Julie Myerson is the author of Home: The Story of Everyone Who Ever Lived in Our House and nine novels, including the best-selling Something Might Happen, which was longlisted for the Booker Prize. In the words of the Observer, she 'has a talent for making the unthinkable readable. The results are riveting.'
