SLEEPYHEAD'S BEDSIDE COMPANION

SEAN COUGHLAN    Book Number: 82557    Product format: Paperback

Each night we go missing from ourselves, disappearing from the control of our waking mind and losing ourselves in sleep. Apart from a few chaotic, half-remembered glimpses of our dreams, we have little or no recollection of where we have been during that time. The body and brain undergo a series of changes night after night and begins with the first steps into sleep. You take an undercover mystery tour into the history of the bed, gourmet sleep recipes, pyjamas, sleeper trains, the Big Sleep and best sleep movies, bed testers, lullabies, Pepys's erotic dreams, futons - the bed of torture - water beds and why children like frightening bedtime stories before we get hot in bed with the electric blanket and Einstein, find out how much Edwardian children slept, insomnia, counting sheep, sex, drugs and overdoses, shift workers, light pollution, REM sleep, Freud and Jung, Surrealism and dreams, dream poetry, sleep walking and death. Pyjamas are optional in this nightly journey. Many well chosen b/w illustrations. 256pp in paperback.
