Anna lives in a flat with dad. He is a hoarder, and together they have spent the last 12 years constructing the Insomnia Museum, a labyrinth built from dead TVs, old cuckoo clocks, stacks of newspapers and other junk Dad has found.
Anna is 17. She can't remember ever having seen outside the flat, but noises penetrate her isolated world: dogs bark in the walls;music plays in the floor, and a ship sails through the canyons between the tower blocks. Then one day dad falls asleep and won't wake up, and Anna must leave the museum and try to survive in a place that turns out to be stranger and more dangerous than she could have imagined.
It this dazzlingly original debut novel, Laurie Canciani has created a world that is terrible, magical, and richly imagined.
