Jill Alexander Essbaum

Make no mistake: everything has a variant. Like versions of truth, like versions of love, there are versions of sleep. The deepest sleep is meant only for children and perfect fools. Everyone else must pay each night her restless due. ― Jill Alexander Essbaum, Hausfrau. (Random House; First Edition first Printing edition March 17, 2015)
