"In 2009 Bill Hayes moved to New York from San Francisco at the age of forty-eight with a one-way ticket. Grieving over the death of his partner, he quickly discovered the profound consolations of the city's incessant rhythms and New Yorkers themselves, kindred souls that Hayes, a lifelong insomniac, encountered on nocturnal strolls with his camera. And he unexpectedly fell in love again, with his neighbour, the writer and neurologist Oliver Sacks. In this memoir, what emerges is a portrait of Sacks at his most endearing, from falling in love for the first time aged seventy-five to facing death (Sacks died of cancer in August 2015). Filled with Hayes's distinctive srreet photos, Insomniac City is both a meditation on grief and a celebration of life."
