The Way We Sleep

$14.95 - On Sale

Beds are the most intimate of places, where you spend a third of your life. They are quiet places, they are rambunctious places. We are combining prose, comics, illustrations, and interviews into a fantastic (not so) little book all about beds and sleep.

Edited by C. James Bye and Jessa Bye.

"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."

"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 best-selling novel Hairstyles of the Damned
