"I say that Albert Vetch was the first real writer I knew not becaue he was, for a while, able to sell his work to magazines, but because he was the first one to have the midnight disease; to have the rocking chair and the faithful bottle of bourbon and the staring eye, lucid with insomnia even in the daytime."

Wonder Boys

Great book, great film. This quote for soem reason made me think of Henry Miller, a bit of Bukowski, and if you have a look at how many postings I've made in the last couple of days you'll see why the insomnia bit rings a bell. Very Happy
