Back in print after an absence of nearly 70 years, the facsimile edition of E. C. Large's novel Asleep in the Afternoon is what we now call a "mash-up," made up of scientific research, social satire, and fictional flights of fancy.Sugar in the Air concludes with the novel's central character--unmistakably modeled on the author--receiving his pension and beginning work on a novel called Asleep in the Afternoon, which was the title of the novel E. C. Large wrote in 1939. This meta-fictional satire tells parallel stories about one woman's belief in sleep as a cure for society's ills and her advocacy for a mysterious new device that can induce it. The alternating tale concerns this fictional author's writing process and family life.
