An alarming sleeplessness memoir finds abundant causes for worry, reports DailyXtra.

Across chapters like “The War on Sleep” and “Walking After Midnight,” Vaughan offers glimpses into his vexed epochs of sleeplessness, which include a history of dissatisfied sleep-mates. And he conjures an emerging dystopian reality (aka “insomnia culture,” a “cultural condition, like alienation or bullying/being bullied,” which he has watched “grow and fortify itself over the decades”). From Bright Eyed, in fact, it’s possible to view his condition as being the vanguard; someday soon, all humans could be there.
