Video: ‘He Wrote Me a Letter’

Insomniac City: New York, Oliver, and Me is a memoir by author, essayist, and photographer Bill Hayes, scheduled for release from Bloomsbury on February 14, 2017. In the book he offers a glimpse at his relationship with his friend and neighbor, and eventual partner, the writer and neurologist Oliver Sacks. This little video from Bloomsbury explains how the two met: “He wrote me a letter.”
