Insomniac City


Dear Appleberry,

There is hope for me yet. This beautifully written, touching and heartfelt memoir begins with the story of author Bill Hayes moving to New York City at the age of 48 to start a new life, after the death of his lover in San Francisco. He meets famed author Oliver Sacks and the two enter the second act of their lives.

I’ll never find love but maybe I can still move to New York after all! I have 8 more years to go…

Anyhow, the backdrop of New York was much appreciated by me, but I think anyone would enjoy hearing about the different characters that Hayes meets and the different neighbourhoods he pops into.

Very accessible to read, yet at the same time elevated with intelligent prose. Journal entries from Hayes show humour and the development of another significant relationship in his life.
