About the Author

Patricia Morrisroe was selected by renowned photographer Robert Mapplethorpe to write his biography Mapplethorpe: A Biography, and was for many years a contributing editor to New York magazine. Morrisroe has written for numerous other publications, including Vanity FairVogue, and The New York Times. In 2010, she wrote Wide Awake: A Memoir of Insomnia, which blended science, culture, and personal insight to tell the story she shares with forty million other Americans about not being able to sleep at night. With her husband, Lee, she divides her time between a noisy apartment in New York City and a relatively quiet house in Westchester County.
