Description:

Insomnia has claimed everyone Biggs knows. Even his beloved wife, Carolyn, succumbed before disappearing into the quickly collapsing world. Yet Biggs can still sleep, and dream, so he sets out to find her. He ventures out into a world ransacked by mass confusion and desperation, where he meets others struggling against the tide of sleeplessness. Chase and Jordan are devising a scheme to live off their drug-store lootings; Lila is a high school student wandering the streets in an owl mask; Felicia abandons the sanctuary of a sleep research center to try to protect her family and perhaps reunite with Chase, an ex-boyfriend. However, Biggs persists in his quest for Carolyn, finding a resolve and inner strength that he never knew he had.

Quotes:

Starred review. Calhoun's depiction of the collapse of language, reason, and love in a world without sleep is unflinching, and - scariest of all - it feels brilliantly contemporary., Publishers Weekly

Starred review. Calhoun's literary dystopia, which features beautiful writing, arresting imagery, and powerful metaphors, will appeal to fans of Karen Thompson Walker's The Age of Miracles... A deeply lyrical exploration of humanity at the extremes., Library Journal

Surreal... Calhoun's premise is brilliant., Kirkus

Black Moon is the kind of book I envy as a writer, and seek out as a reader - a novel of ideas wrapped in a gripping, expertly constructed story, full of feeling and intelligence., Charles Yu, , Author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe

Surprising and unpredictable... In his first novel, Calhoun paints an all-too-believable landscape... His dark tale is allegorical and relevant in today's zombie-infatuated zeitgeist. This clever twist on the dystopian formula is a standout., Booklist
