Sleep Lane by Steve Hennessy
A taxi driver takes a mysterious Greek passenger to a fairytale treelined lane on the edge of Bristol and a night of midsummer madness begins. Characters from Greek mythology emerge from and disappear into the leafy suburban street. An unfolding economic tragedy is sweeping across Europe from Greece and about to engulf the lives of three individuals all equally baffled by the mysteries of love, sex and money. Is anything in Sleep Lane real, or is it all just a dream where money grows on the trees?
