Death, Sleep & the Traveler

By John Hawkes
The author of seven full-length novels, several plays, and numerous short fictions, John Hawkes over the course of two and a half decades has won international acclaim.Death, Sleep & The Traveler is about a middle-aged Dutchman, his dissolving marriage, his involvement in two sexual triangles, his obsession with the murder he is accused of having committed on a pleasure cruise. It is an exceptionally concise and beautiful work, writes the novelist-critic Jonathan Baumbach, delicate, erotic, dreamlike in all, a luminous novel by the richest prose stylist in American letters since Faulkner.
