Sleeping Beauties

In this spectacular father/son collaboration, Stephen King and Owen King tell the highest ofhigh-stakes stories: what might happen if women disappeared from the world of men?

In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep; theybecome shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodiesis disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent; and while they sleepthey go to another place... The men of our world are abandoned, left to their increasingly primaldevices. One woman, however, the mysterious Evie, is immune to the blessing or curse of thesleeping disease. Is Evie a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain? Set in a small Appalachian town whose primary employer is a women’s prison, Sleeping Beautiesis a wildly provocative, gloriously absorbing father/son collaboration between Stephen King and Owen King.

Johnny Smith has come back from the void with an extraordinarygift that becomes his life’s curse... presenting visions of what was and what will be for both theinnocent and guilty alike.
