Bill Hayes came to New York City in 2009 with a one-way ticket and only the vaguest idea of how he would get by. Grieving over the death of his partner, he quickly discovered the profound consolations of the city's incessant rhythms, and he fell in love again, with his friend and neighbour, the writer and neurologist Oliver Sacks. Insomniac City is both a meditation on grief and a celebration of life. Filled with Hayes's distinctive street photos of everyday New Yorkers, the book is a love song to the city and a remembrance of Sacks.
