Gabrielle Levy's The Insomniac Society is the international phenomenon for those having sleepless night's everywhere . . .
Five people. One thing in common: none of them can sleep.
Claire, who sits awake beside a snoring husband and a little boy who is not hers.
Jacques, a psychiatrist at the end of his career whose lonely nights are punctuated only by anonymous phone calls.
Michele, a retiree whose dark secret compels her out of bed and to church.
Lena, a young goth who cannot brave the dawn, volunteering at a local cafe.
Herve, a shy accountant who sits in bed, panicking about his job while scrolling through emails into the early hours.
As meetings led by sleep specialist Marie-Helene draw them together, friendships will be formed and confessions made... but will they discover what's keeping them awake? And more importantly: will they be able to get to sleep?
