From Library Journal. Louise Bourgeois: The Insomnia Drawings, on the other hand, is a superior book on this major American artist. Despite the cost, it is well worth obtaining; it contains 220 of the finest facsimile illustrations, a pair of lucid and well-written essays, and the best chronology on the artist to date. The "Insomnia Drawings" themselves are riveting and illuminate the artist's world of poetic thought. They record seven months of her night-drawing period, from November 1994 through June 1995.
Marie-Louise Bernadac, a leading Bourgeois scholar, places "The Insomnia Drawings" in context of Bourgeois' oeuvre, providing biographical references for many notes, and pointing out the leitmotifs of Bourgeois' imaginary universe. In a lucid and beautifully written essay, Elisabeth Bronfen traces the nocturnal mysteries of insomnia and places this work of art in a larger cultural context. Furthermore, the second volume offers a chronology and annotated transcriptions of all texts and notes.

Author Quote: "She presents herself as a lady-in-waiting, silent and patient, with the night promising to save her from the array of desires such as love, faith, faithlessness, tenacity, ambition, while here sleeplessness prevents any salvation from her psychic distress. If in these drawings and texts the night is metaphorically conceived of as an expanse of water that might engulf her, while sleep would restore her, insomnia is what prevents any voyage into inundation. (...) Because her insomnia brings states of ambivalence to the fore, she keeps returning to the question of being suspended between two emotions-between plentitude and lack, proximity and absence, agreement and contradiction." -Elisabeth Bronfen
