Description

Gabrielle Levy’s The Insomniac Society is the international phenomenon for those having sleepless night’s everywhere . . .

Five people. One thing in common: none of them can sleep.

Claire, who sits awake beside a snoring husband and a little boy who is not hers.
Jacques, a psychiatrist at the end of his career whose lonely nights are punctuated only by anonymous phone calls.
Michele, a retiree whose dark secret compels her out of bed and to church.
Lena, a young goth who cannot brave the dawn, volunteering at a local cafe.
Herve, a shy accountant who sits in bed, panicking about his job while scrolling through emails into the early hours.

As meetings led by sleep specialist Marie-Helene draw them together, friendships will be formed and confessions made… but will they discover what’s keeping them awake? And more importantly: will they be able to get to sleep?

Publisher Review

Gabrielle Levy does an admirable job characterising her hodgepodge collection of insomniacs and draws from a varied palette of types, demonstrating how anyone, from any strata of society, can lose their sleep * Buzz Magazine *
