Adam Foulds's Dream Sequence is a darkly comic novel about obsessive fandom—a necessary and inevitable story about our current moment's blurring between the public and private. Adam was named one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists in 2013 and one of the Poetry Book Society's Next Generation Poets in 2014.

He has received a number of literary awards, including the Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year Award, the Costa Poetry Award, the Somerset Maugham Award, the South Bank Show Annual Award for Literature, the Encore Award, and the European Union Prize for Literature. His novel The Quickening Maze was short-listed for the Man Booker Prize in 2009.

 

He is joined by John Wray, author of critically acclaimed novels The Lost Time Accidents, Lowboy, The Right Hand of SleepCanaan's Tongue, and, most recently, Godsend, which was named a best book of 2018 by The Guardian and The Wall Street Journal.
