About this title


Adrian Strother, an insomniac hypnotist, becomes involved with an unsavory drug trafficker and his henchman, while trying to save his faltering love life

From Library Journal:

Adrian Strother, a young American living in London, is the titular Doctor Sleep of this new novel by the author of Waiting for the End of the World ( LJ 9/15/90). A hypnotherapist by trade, Adrian fancies himself a necromancer as well, spending his off-hours in the British Museum studying the works of Giordano Bruno. He is possessed by the desire to learn the esoteric secrets by which he can attain godlike powers, an obsession which has, ironically, left him sleepless. As the novel opens, his lover Clara moves out just as two friends from his drug-addicted years in New York appear on the scene. Adrian's attempts to reconcile past and present lead to a series of waking nightmares involving punks, a drug lord, and shadowy operatives of Scotland Yard. In the end, he realizes his Faustian quest--only to find the result far different than he imagined. Part thriller, part psychological study, this is a notable addition to Bell's rapidly growing body of work. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 9/1/90.
