Sleepless Nights
Elizabeth Hardwick, Geoffrey O'brien

Paperback $28.00 - The New York Review of Books, Inc
Fiction - Published: 1/Jan/2002 - ISBN: 9780940322721

The narrator of Sleepless Nights is a woman piecing together her life from scraps. Those scraps include tent meetings in Kentucky, a seedy hotel in New York in the 1940s, a nightclub where Billy Holliday sings. There are newly divorced women taking each other's emotional temperature and several seductive men - especially a Dutch doctor who conducts his adulteries with domestic coziness. Above all, there is Hardwick's own unmistakable sensibility, one that delights in startling juxtapositions and the music of the American language.
