SHC is proud to offer this wonderfully insightful and creative look at human sleep through the eyes of fiction writers for its inaugural launch giveaway:
The Way We Sleep [Curbside Splendor Publishing, 2012 || Chicago].
The Way We Sleep is an anthology of short stories, interviews, and comics all dealing with the way we sleep. Beds are the most intimate of places, where you spend a third of your life. They are quiet places, they are rambunctious places.
The Way We Sleep combines prose, comics, illustrations and interviews into a fantastic book all about beds and sleep.
Praise for The Way We Sleep:
"At once a hybrid text and a compendium of tales related more or less loosely to the theme of sleep, this generously sized volume edited by C. James Bye and Jessica Bye offers flash-length tidbits and short stories by well-known and less well-known writers, interviews with movie and TV directors, and a healthy dose of comics." — Los Angeles Review
"The Way We Sleep represents the very best of what a book can do that no other narrative medium can touch; it's part anthology, part art-book, part interview, part graphic novel, part confessional, part essay, part sociological study. The subject matter here ranges from sex to family to coming-of-age, all rendered with a delightful wit, brevity, and charm. From Mary Roach's study of insomnia to Tony Millionaire's depiction of epic torpor to the Resident's exploration of sleepwalking, The Way We Sleep is as intimate, poignant, and humorous as anything whispered beneath the sheets." —Joe Meno, author of Hairstyles of the Damned
