The Sleep Garden explores and pushes the boundaries between fact and imagination, real and surreal, and life and the afterlife.

In an underground apartment building called "the Burrow"--essentially purgatory--"twilight souls" inhabit the space between life and death. Interwoven with their stories are those of inhabitants of the living world: a retired sea captain, a psychotic former child actor (possibly the sea captain's illegitimate son?), and the technicians who monitor the Burrow, making sure its occupants have a constant supply of oxygen and food. Through all of their stories, and the ways in which their lives, past and present, intertwine, Krusoe creates a poignant story about what constitutes a life, what remains when we die, and what we possibly carry with us into the next world.
