In this edition of Electric Book Machine, Lauren and Isaac read Jonathan W. White’s cultural history Midnight in America: Darkness, Sleep, and Dreams During the Civil War. We talk about weird dreams, superstitions, and how psychic Abraham Lincoln probably wasn’t. War is hell, but sleep deprivation might be worse!
Lauren has, like, a double concussion, so things are moving slowly this spring. More fun stuff to come from your favorite literate couple… eventually!
