Amanda Eyre Ward stormed onto the literary scene with this resounding first novel that commanded immediate acclaim. In Sleep Toward Heaven, Karen sinks inside herself as she awaits execution for murder. Karen’s prison doctor, Franny, is drowning in her own guilt over the death of a patient, and Celia, the widow of one of Karen’s victims, tries desperately to move on with her life.
“[Ward’s] spare but psychologically rich portraits are utterly convincing.” (Publishers Weekly)
