Stories Beyond The Book

“It could be enough, more than enough, to be a person occupied for the rest of my life by what might look to others only an idiotically simple gathering in of small and obscure moments: the collecting of stories from ordinary people like me.”

The Cure For Sleep

Each month’s issue of The Cure for Sleep on Substack gives away an advance extract from the book, inviting subscribers to respond with a related memory or vignette of their own. And this is the book’s purpose: to celebrate the vivid moments of being when we turn towards change, choice, effort, risk, commitment. Those instants when we are most fully awake to our lives and times.

This is where subscribers’ stories will accumulate in the months before publication day on 20 January 2022.
