There’s nothing that brings out the poetry in a writer like the unattainable. … Hayes, a lifelong insomniac, pursues sleep as avidly and lyrically as Nabokov pursued butterflies. In the pages of Sleep Demons: An Insomniac’s Memoir, he lays bare a life obsessed with nighttime slumber and suffused with daytime drowsiness.
