Samantha Harvey, THE SHAPELESS UNEASE
Jun 18th, 2020 by zibbyowens
Samantha Harvey is an acclaimed novelist whose most recent book, a genre-bending memoir called The Shapeless Unease: A Year of Not Sleeping, just came out to rave reviews. For anyone who has ever experienced a sleepless night (perhaps all of us these days), this book mirrors the emotions that surface in the dead of night. The form followed the content as Samantha navigated her issues, delving into losses and traumas from her past. We talked about her thoughts about writing, not sleeping, and the writing process itself: that it's like dreaming, and also an expression of love that requires you to open your heart.
