A quick summary
Insomniac City is a beautiful series of diary extracts and short essays about love and loss. Bill Hayes’ beloved partner of many years died unexpectedly, and he moved to New York in a state of shock and grief. He tracks the seasons and reflects on bereavement, insomnia, art, and the city. Then, unexpectedly but happily, he and the great neurologist and writer Oliver Sacks meet and fall in love – the first romance of Sack’s life, age 75. Hayes tells their sweet love story by sharing snippets of their beautiful conversations, heightened by their awareness of how precious their time together was.
