Deprivation: or, Benedetto furioso: an oneiromancy


This is one of those novels I needed and read at just the right time. Not so much a classic fantasy as it is about a man who lives in a fantasy world. Still it was nominated for a Lammy in the SF/Fantasy/Horror category. Ben is a young man fresh out of college, in his first job, commuting fifty miles one way every day. It ruins his sleeping pattern, affording him only a few hours of sleep a night. When he does sleep he has vivid dreams that perhaps keep him trapped in his daily life. It's hard to tell the difference between his dreams and reality, the dreams sometimes being better than real life.
