A review from The L Magazine in New York!

Here's a taste:

Drug and alcohol addiction, HIV, cancer, depression and family dysfunction all make appearances in So Many Ways to Sleep Badly, yet, perhaps surprisingly, the book is anything but grim. Sycamore’s frenetic pacing and jarring prose — indeed, his optimism that a better world is possible — makes the book a compelling read. Subtly political, it posits friendship, camaraderie and activism as ways to defy the morass of Republicrat rule. What’s more, in quips worthy of Jon Stewart, Sycamore slams NAFTA, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom and the Iraq War.

So Many Ways to Sleep Badly is sometimes shocking and sometimes sweet, a perfect antidote to the election year posturing of folks we can only assume sleep as soundly as babes.
