“Stories to Tell in the Middle of the Night is something new, a collection of ideas, a stack of stories, odd, familiar, funny, true and stolen. Stories that I’ve been writing on & off for years. Stories that follow the pattern of a sleepless night. Finding a way for those stories to tell larger themes. I’ve looked into sleeplessness, anxieties, patterns and social statistics. I’ve looked into what keeps us awake, what makes us lonely, how we now connect. Technology. I’ve looked at numbness to violent images, narcissism, the reflection of ourselves online.” Francesca Millican-Slater.
