Cheryl (cherylm80) From what I can remember, I think she was the last person alive, and the book was more or less her waiting to die. She was somewhere cold, and she spent a lot of time in a sleeping bag, which was frozen.

I read the book quite a while ago but I think at least over 10 years ago.

Mai | 1204 comments This novel came up searching "novel" "last person alive" "sleeping bag":
The Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier. It was published in 2006.

You can read a preview of the book here:

I searched for "sleeping bag" inside the book preview and there are 6 results. In one of them it says: "Already the sweat she had generated inside her sleeping bag had turned it into a rigid, icy box."


Cheryl (cherylm80) This is the book! Thank you!
