Bright-Eyed at Midnight by Leslie Stein

This week we received Bright-Eyed at Midnight, a beautiful hard cover new book by Leslie Stein! She is the Brooklyn-based author of Eye of The Majestic Creature, and she also publishes comic pages on the Vice Magazine website.

Bright-Eyed at Midnight is a compilation of diary sketchbooks that Leslie Stein kept every night during 2014. This exercise allowed her to experiment with style and narration, meanwhile readers have access to her instinctive creative impulse. She goes from telling her daily life as a bartender, to childhood memories, excerpts of books she is reading and comments on music (she is also part of the band Prince Rupert's Drop).

Her insomniac pages are sometimes messy (mostly at the beginning of the book, actually) but it's for our own sake, and as Leslie Stein says: "Life is messy", anyway, so art should be too.
