Awake!: A Reader for the Sleepless
Steven Lee Beeber
Soft Skull Press, Jul 28, 2007 - Health & Fitness - 350 pages
Millions can’t sleep; millions more sleep with those who can’t sleep. This collection is ideal for both the casual light sleeper and the dedicated insomniac (as well as their bedmates), delighting and distracting night owls with irresistible fiction, articles, blogs, art, photographs, comics, and more. Previously unpublished stories by Aimee Bender and Arthur Bradford; pithy comics by Howard Cruse and Shannon Wheeler; and art by Louise Bourgeois are a few of the highlights. Perfect for dipping (even while drowsing),Awake’s lively, literate riffs make sleeplessness not just tolerable but fun.
