about this book

Award-winning author of the acclaimed novels The Organ Builder and The Here and Now, Robert Cohen presents a wildly entertaining work of fiction that is also a provocative indictment of our over-medicated society.

Ian Ogelvie and Bonnie Saks are drawn together by an experimental drug–he as researcher, she as test subject. Bonnie is lucky if she gets four consecutive hours of shut-eye, what with her responsibilities as a single mother of two (soon to be three) and a frustrated academic. When she joins Ian’s test group, the question remains whether enhanced REM sleep will save the day. Endearing and intelligent, Inspired Sleep shows Cohen to be both a hugely talented novelist and a shrewd cultural critic.
