Insomniac City - New York, Oliver and Me, by Bill Hayes

This is such a beautiful book. I first heard of Bill Hayes in Oliver Sacks autobiography On the Move; I was curious and I read his book The Anatomist, that I liked very much, and now I was interested in reading his account of the last days of Sacks. And so I found out there's so much more about Bill Hayes than having been Oliver Sacks' companion. His writing is beautiful, his essays most intelligent and perceptive, his narrative of his times with Sacks, in the form of a journal, moving and never corny, they actually brought tears to my eyes a few times. Reading this book was a tender and fulfilling experience, and I'm looking forward to read more of Bill Hayes.
