An image for Pamela Woolford's conceived novel-in-stories Sleep


Sleep is Pamela Woolford’s conceived novel-in-stories, a portrait of three interconnected people one fairly sleepless night, exploring each character's past, present, and future. Predominately set in two bedrooms, Sleep is also, more broadly, an exploration of the human spirit and connectivity found in ordinary lives. It takes place in an unnamed city, and certain characteristics of the protagonists go unlabeled, including age, race, and physical features. Sleep examines subtle meaning in actions between people as well as symbolism and suspense in the everyday. Lastly, it is an exploration of the relationship between longing and peace and a celebration of beauty in the quotidian.
