Books like Sleepless Nights
2001, Elizabeth Hardwick
Sleepless Nights is a 1979 novel by American novelist and critic Elizabeth Hardwick.
In Sleepless Nights a woman looks back on her life—the parade of people, the shifting background of place—and assembles a scrapbook of memories, reflections, portraits, letters, wishes, and dreams. The novel contains autobiographical elements.
Writing for the New York Times, Lauren Groff referred to the book as "[...] brilliant, brittle and strange".
Sigrid Nunez drew inspiration from the book while writing her novel The Friend.
