Adam Foulds is releasing Dream Sequence and will be celebrating its publication with a Toronto Lit Up book launch! Join Biblioasis and the Toronto International Festival of Authors for this exciting event.

Henry Banks, star of the UK’s most popular television series, has higher aspirations, ones befitting of his talent: a serious film career, beginning with a role in a brilliant Spanish director’s next movie. To make the jump to the big screen, he’ll have to remake himself in more than one way. But as he runs his morning miles and scrutinizes his changing physique in the mirror, he doesn’t know that he’s not alone in his obsession—Kristin, an unstable American fan, has her own ambitions. From the author of Man-Booker shortlisted The Quickening MazeDream Sequence is a moving depiction of desire and delusion and the unsettling consequences of fame.
