A provocative look at a family's psychological underside chronicles the fortunes of a Jewish family in which the parents are Holocaust survivors, centering on the incestuous relationships that develop between the son and his mother and his sister.

Sleepless Nights is the first major novel by Andrew Bergman - screenwriter, director, and a talented and powerful new voice in contemporary fiction.
Sleepless Nights is a novel about a Jewish family, the parents of which have survived the Holocaust, and the dark currents of incest among them. As in Nabokov's Lolita, there is in Andrew Bergman's novel an underlying hunger for love and acceptance that speaks not only for this family, whose nights are too often sleepless, but perhaps for many so-called normal families as well. And, remarkably, at the end, there is the promise of nights free of past demons and open to a future never dreamed of.
