So, thanks to an Amazon.com customer review I learned that Sleeper actually follows Brubaker’s overlapping book, Point Blank. Fortunately Powell’s had a used copy so I plowed through that one. Very drunk, very violent “superhero” with memory problems. I’m glad I read it after reading so much of the Sleeper story because a lot of things were surprises to me in that storyline that would have had much less impact if I had already read Point Blank. I’m curious if Sleeper will be the end of Lynch, Tao and Carver or if some version of at least Tao and Lynch’s struggle will continue. Man, Brubaker has come a long way from slacker stories. Who says the mainstream is all bad for people?
