Each month’s issue of The Cure for Sleep on Substack gives away an advance extract and invites 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 times when we are fully awake to our lives and times. Stories from the author’s life are told so as to call forth tales in return. This is where they will accumulate in the months before publication day.
