Reviews

"The dream Adam Foulds weaves in this scintillating novel is gradually revealed, with grace and subtlety, to be an especially timely form of waking nightmare--but a nightmare so precise, and often beautiful, that one comes to prefer it, in some ways, to dull reality. Read this book." --John Wray, author of Godsend

"Dream Sequence succeeds as a narrative thanks to Foulds's prose. He doesn't waste a single word, is frequently very funny, insightful and surprising. And he does a marvelous job of making us wonder who loves Henry the most, Kristin or Henry--and which of these possibilities is the most alarming consequence of celebrity." --Julie Klam, The New York Times Book Review

"Foulds's novel is fun, smart, and tense, part psychological drama about media-driven obsession and part razor-sharp social critique." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Reminiscent of Ian McEwan's Enduring Love, this wryly observed story of a self-absorbed actor and a pathological fan documents the tragic consequences of a misguided love." --Barbara Love, Library Journal (strarred review)

"Adam Foulds's fourth novel, Dream Sequence, is an exquisitely concocted, riveting account of artistic ambition and unrequited love verging on obsession . . . One finishes the book wishing the dream were longer." --Philip Womack, The Spectator

"Beautifully written . . . A novel about loneliness and obsession in contemporary life, set in hotels and airports, sterile apartment blocks, gyms and yoga classes." --Alice O'Keefe, New Statesman
