Full Description

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."
