An old woman returns alone to the spot where as a young girl she used to meet her lover on his daily lunch break. An unsuspecting couple find themselves drawn to a window to watch the neighbours' kinky play turn into something more sinister. Twin teenage sisters make an awkward pilgrimage with their ageing-hippie father. A young guy misses his flight and returns to observe a kind of alternate version of his own life, one from which he seems to have vanished. "Sleepwalk" is a classic Tomine collection, a series of vignettes that scratch beneath the surface of seemingly well-adjusted lives.
A follow-up to Shortcomings, Tomine's UK debut, this is the first publication here of Sleepwalk, his classic collection of witty and oddly haunting stories.
