What book would you give someone you wanted to have terrible dreams?

What book would you give someone you wanted to have terrible dreams?S

There's no gift like a good book — it shows that you've thought about the person, and you're sharing the most precious thing humans can create: a story. But sometimes, giving a book says "I want you to have screaming surreal nightmares." What book would you give to someone you wanted to inflict bad dreams on?

Please include a picture of the book cover or other representative image. And let us know the title, author, and why it's so nightmare-inducing. Thanks!
