'A twisted masterpiece' Guardian 1939. In a grotty corner of London, in a flat above a shop, a private eye known as Wolf keeps
his office. The city is in the throes of a very British Fascism, and Wolf is far from the life he left behind in Germany,
before the Fall. Business hasn't been good, so when a glamorous Jewish heiress comes through his door, he has no choice but
to take on her case.It's a decision Wolf will soon regret.For in another time and place, a man lies dreaming. Once a Yiddish
pulp writer, but now imprisoned in a hell of humanity's making, Shomer creates lurid tales of revenge in his sleep...Prescient,
darkly funny and wholly original, the award-winning A Man Lies Dreaming is a modern fable for our time.
