There’s a moment fairly early in Charlie Huston’s Sleepless where it seems that the novel, a noir dystopia which takes place in an alternate 2010 in which civilization has been brought nearly to a halt by the rapid spread of lethal sleeplessness, might as well have been subtitled “abandon all hope of subtlety, ye who enter here.” It comes when Jasper, an assassin who narrates large portions of the novel, tells of the early spread of the plague, a prion disease originally mistaken for bovine spongiform encephalopathy, otherwise known as Mad Cow Disease.
