annelies verbeke, the writer
i am not sure about the book's original name but it must be something like "sleep"
according to the summary of book, maya cant sleep at nights and somehow she meet with Benoit who cant sleep at nights..
(what a coincidence !) the writer says the people arent able to understand the reasons of being insominia of others. and th ones who has a problem with sleeping, are bad tempered, who feel alone.. etc.
hmm. maybe she is trying to explain "learned helplessness"..
