Sleepless Nights (New York Review Books Classics)

Sleepless Nights (New York Review Books Classics)

"Sleepless Nights is a mélange of landscapes, time periods, and thoughts that come together as images from a long, dappled dream. Lately I’ve grown a little tired of the endless, pervading fascination with fact versus fiction and the writer’s place in the middle of it all. Sleepless Nights has been described as autobiographical, but it’s not so much 'about' a life as it is about feeling at its core, and the desire to communicate to others—in sentences so perfect I’d like to have them framed—the details of that life, in which I found sadness, joy, style; a singular, companionable voice. Oh, what a voice! I’d like to stay up all night listening to it."

In Sleepless Nights a woman looks back on her life—the parade of people, the shifting background of place—and assembles a scrapbook of memories, reflections, portraits, letters, wishes, and dreams. An inspired fusion of fact and invention, this beautifully realized, hard-bitten, lyrical book is not only Elizabeth Hardwick's finest fiction but one of the outstanding contributions to American literature of the last fifty years.
