One night in an isolated college town in the hills of Southern California, a first-year student stumbles into her room and  falls asleep. She sleeps through the morning, into the evening. Her roommate cannot rouse her. Neither can the paramedics, nor the perplexed doctors at the hospital. When a second girl falls asleep, and then a third, panic takes hold of the college and spreads to the town. A young couple tries to protect their newborn baby as the once-quiet streets descend into chaos. Two sisters turn to each other for comfort as their survivalist father prepares for disaster. Written in luminous prose,  The Dreamers  is a breathtaking and beautiful novel, startling and provocative, about the possibilities contained within a human life if only we are awakened to them. & #8216 This beautiful and devastating novel has a dream-like quality of its own& #8217   Red & #8216 Lyrical and beguiling& #8230   a deeply immersive novel about a community in peril& #8230 and the choices we make when our lives, and those of our loved ones, are in danger& #8217   The Observer & #8216 A modern  Midsummer Night& #8217 s Dream& #8230   Walker paints a haunting canvas exploring time, memory, consciousness, and youth& #8217   Marisha Pessl, author of  Night Film & #8216 Frighteningly powerful, beautiful, and uncanny& #8230   a love story and also a horror story& #8217   Karen Russell, author of  Vampires in the Lemon Grove & #8216 This is a profound novel, and a deeply moving one& #8230   she takes a terrifying situation and reveals it as a thing of beauty& #8217   Robin Black, author of  Life Drawing & #8216 Lovely, lyrical and scary& #8230   a mesmerising read& #8217   Psychologies magazine & #8216 A thought-provoking and profound story& #8217   Cosmopolitan & #8216 A slow-building, philosophical and unique novel& #8230 at once a thought-provoking character study and a subtle science fiction tale& #8217   Culturefly Praise  for  The Age of Miracles: & #8216 A beautifully observed coming-of-age tale& #8230   nimble, delicate and emotionally sophisticated& #8217 Observer & #8216 Hauntingly believable& #8230   an  impressive and quietly terrifying  book& #8217   Sunday Times 'A  stunner from the first page& #8230   I loved this novel and can't wait to see what this remarkable writer will do next'  Justin Cronin 'What a remarkable, beautifully wrought novel' Curtis Sittenfeld
