The Sleep of Reason

£3.99

Product description

C.P. Snow has set The Sleep of Reason in the Midlands town where Lewis Eliot grew up and to which he returns from time to time in his capacity as Students' Representative on the University Court. He is no stranger themselves are now a force to be reckoned with, the gambits and the stratagems are recognisably the same as they have always been in any competitive society. His involvement with the case of a group of militant students, and in particular with the family of one of them, leads him into a labyrinth of horror through which he must pass, incapable of influencing events of resigning form them. The horror arises from a murder trial in the town on which is focussed the hypnotised attention of the nation. From it emerges a series of portraits in shock; each of the people involved, to a greater or lesser extent, seems to have frozen emotionally at a point where his consciousness and conscience will admit no more. First edition copy of the book.
