Nancy Kress: Beggars in Spain

I’ve always admired Nancy Kress’ columns in Writer’s Digest. This is the first book of hers I’ve read.

And it’s really, really good! Set in the future where gene modification allows a select group of people not to need sleep, they find that they also become super intelligent and never age.

Society struggles to accommodate this new “species” and conflict ensues.

Good read! Part of a trilogy, so I’m looking forward to the next two.
