9781622880393: 2:12 a.m.: Essays

2:12 a.m. is an insomniac’s tour of counterproductive bedtime stories, Vegas weddings, Southern funerals, Nevada’s nuclear testing grounds, Patty Hearst, Marina Oswald, sleepwalking murderers, Louise Bourgeois’s Insomnia Drawings and more, revealing what wakeful nights conjure for a North Carolinian turned Californian, a farm child turned suburbanite, a 1960s romantic turned fatalist and a once-but-no-longer gifted” sleeper.

The collection, comprised of Best American Essays notables, Pushcart Prize nominees and the winner of Drunken Boat’s Editors’ Choice nonfiction award, mixes the strictly autobiographical with voice-driven reportage and includes essays that are factual, meditative, investigatory and lyrical to take full advantage of the versatility of the form. 2:12 a.m. is a book for all who revisit the past and brood on the future a book about the dislocations of contemporary life, the hauntings of memory, and the perennial search, late night or otherwise, for meaning in existence.

From the Back Cover:

Kat Meads can be funny, eloquent, enlightening and exciting--all in one compelling essay after another. Her new collection is a book to buy and enjoy from beginning to end.
--Lee Gutkind, founder and editor, Creative Nonfiction

A lovely and provocative book.
--Philip Gerard, author of The Patron Saint of Dreams

This fascinating and original collection takes us into a night world undreamt of by those who inhabit daytime complacencies.... There is much to think about here, and much to enjoy, not least of which is the author's wonderfully supple style, sentences that do arabesque leaps from the wickedly funny to the lyrical and hauntingly evocative.
--Gayle Greene, author of Insomniac
