Asleep in the afternoon

Asleep in the afternoon is the novel that the ‘hero’ (ironically conceived) of Sugar in the air then writes. The book has quite a complex structure: a novel about a device that can bring on sleep, the woman who becomes a missionary advocate for this sleep as a social palliative; and the story, told in parallel, of the writer and his wife and young family, living through the making and production of this novel. First published by Jonathan Cape, London, in 1938. [publisher's note]
