GOVERNOR GENERAL'S AWARD FINALIST Christopher Dewdney takes us on an enchanting hour-by-hour journey through the night. With eloquence and insight, Dewdney explores this dark frontier in its many guises: as it seeps into the habitats of nocturnal creatures, takes its place in our bedtime stories and ancient myths, makes its way into our sleeping bodies. Whether investigating the cosmology of the night or visiting a modern sleep clinic, Dewdney brings a philosopher’s mind, a scientist’s thirst and a poet’s eye to his subject. Highly acclaimed in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K., Acquainted with the Night is bedside reading at its most intimate and illuminating.
