It is Trish's gift for recruiting that lands the Harkonnen family as donors, and more specifically their daughter, known as Baby A. It turns out that Baby A is the worlds only known "universal donor", in that her sleep is so pure that all can be helped by her donations. Because Baby A is so unique, there is an incredible demand on her donations. Adding to that demand is the one time donation from a Donor Y who corrupts the nations sleep supply with a viral nightmare that spreads rapidly. It is a nightmare so awful, that many who so desperately sought sleep, now do anything to remain awake, even though it will eventually cost them their lives.Read more ›
Before I realized it this novella had captured my imagination in a very subtle and intriguing way. She slowly built this world of people who can't sleep and people who are afraid to sleep, this character starting to doubt something that she's always been so invested in, and explored how people respond and make decision in difficult situations. It's a very relevant story despite it's unlikely premise, and while the ending was abrupt, it was also fitting. It was like the story snuck up on me and then pulled away quickly, like falling asleep and being awakened suddenly. Karen Russell is a wonderful, talented writer, and I've enjoyed everything she's written.
This is a stunning book which does trickle off after the premise is established. In the end, the cure is shockingly personal and the despair of the many dulls even the deeply empathetic who try to help.
