Nooit meer slapen

Nooit meer slapen is het meesterlijke verhaal van de jonge geoloog Alfred Issendorf, die in het moerassige noorden van Noorwegen onderzoek wil verrichten om de hypothese van zijn leermeester en promotor Sibbelee te staven. Issendorf is ambitieus: hij hoopt dat hem op deze reis iets groots te wachten staat, dat zijn naam aan een belangrijk wetenschappelijk feit zal worden verbonden. Deze ambitie hangt samen met het verlangen het werk van zijn vader, die door een ongeluk tijdens een onderzoekstocht om het leven kwam, te voltooien. Nooit meer slapen is een grootse roman over grote dromen.
