"The Dream Woman" by Wilkie Collins

A medical man who had gone to another town for a consultation encountered a hotel landlord and heard a rather odd tale about an old man in his employ. This man would only sleep during the day because of horrible dreams that plagued him at night. The medical man’s interest was piqued believing he may be able to help this man, so he asked the landlord to tell him everything he knew about this man’s past life. Over lunch, the medical man settled in to hear the “extravagant and incredible” story from the landlord. And as he spoke, the story within a story began. Narrated by Ian Holm.
