2017 12:33 pm What the heart wants: Bill Hayes with Oliver Sacks Related News What was it about New York that made you move to the city after 25 years in San Francisco My writing took me to NYC numerous times over the years and I always enjoyed it: the energy the anonymity I felt happily lost in crowds the density of life the museums and so on But as I note early in the book visiting New York is one thing living here is another; it was definitely an adjustment to become a New Yorker and make the decision to stay In your telling New York is both a place “where one comes to reinvent himself” and one where if you “ask first don’t grab be fair” it pays you back sooner or later Did you imagine that the city would become such a prominent character in your life when you moved there Yes I knew from the outset — long before I started writing long before Oliver’s illness — that New York would be the main character of this book When I moved here I knew very few people yet I felt the city welcomed me with open arms In a certain way New York saved my life by allowing me start my life over at age 48 Then when I actually was working on the book I felt it important that the focus would not just be on Oliver or Oliver and me because I also had an ongoing relationship with the city itself Hopefully the book captures those two romances in my life — with Oliver and with New York City Do you remember your first trip ever to New York I was 12 or 13 living in a small town in Washington state when my parents took one of my five sisters and me to New York That trip made a huge impression New York was everything my hometown wasn’t: diverse densely crowded noisy gritty exciting I loved it My parents loved New York too in part because they had met here in the early 1950s My dad was a cadet at West Point and my mom was living here after college — pursuing art – when mutual friends set them up on a blind date They fell in love and got engaged (though they moved back to Minneapolis to marry and have a family) So I grew up on romantic stories of New York — a romantic vision of the city that remains with me today It’s also quite literally a city that never sleeps Did your insomnia allow you to fit in here in ways that wasn’t perhaps possible elsewhere Absolutely I felt a kinship with the city that I had never experienced in San Francisco or elsewhere — for New York is truly alive at night which is also to say awake If I can’t sleep I get out of bed and look out the window at 3 am and see a whole cast of characters on the street down below — bicyclists skateboarders taxi drivers at the gas station across the street — or in facing apartment buildings Sometimes I will take a walk; at night in New York there are people reading books on benches under street lamps construction workers doing street repair restaurant workers going home The life of an insomniac is less lonely here The form of Insomniac City (Bloomsbury) is like a collage – a record of passing encounters events and people one holds dear who make life what it is Was it something that you had planned or did it come together organically No the book’s structure was not planned in advance I knew I wanted to write a memoir about my life in New York I knew I wanted to incorporate my street photography But I didn’t know how – or even if – I would write about my relationship with my late partner Oliver Sacks Oliver had written about the two of us in his autobiography “On the Move” so I didn’t feel it would be indiscreet yet I also didn’t know how I would approach writing about him in my own way That said I did have material to work with including a 700-page journal chronicling my life in NYC which I had started at his urging a few weeks after moving here in April 2009 I had never re-read the journal But very quickly after starting to dip into it I realised that here was the key to the book – in these passages: I found scenes (between O and me or between me and strangers fellow New Yorkers) that could stand on their own without exposition or set-up They still had the immediacy of the initial conversation or encounter and a kind of looseness to the writing that I felt captured the pace of life in NYC Once I realised what I could do with the material I put it together quickly braiding the three elements – the NY story the Oliver story and the photographic essay This structure was not new for me – my previous three books also rely on interweaving narratives – but it was the most intimate work I had ever done Bill Hayes You write in the book that you started photography in London after your partner Steve’s death Would you say photography teaches one to be more vitally aware of one’s surroundings Does it teach empathy It does make one more vitally aware of others and one’s surroundings — I am constantly looking for pictures on the street even if I’m just dashing to the drugstore — yet I don’t think photography teaches one to be empathetic However the kind of photography I do raises questions that test one’s empathy: Is the photo exploitative in any way Is it capturing the person in a way that might seem unkind or untrue or unflattering (There are hundreds of pictures I’ve discarded for those reasons) When a person agrees to let me take a picture they implicitly place trust in me I try to honour that Does this awareness or openness also render one vulnerable For sure yes When you’re as open with people as I can be when you hear their stories or just see a look in their eyes you sometimes absorb their pain their sadness and walk away with that It can be heartbreaking I suppose that’s a risk that may come with these intense random encounters One of the recurring characters in your book is Ali a Pakistani man running a shop owned by an shlf1314n There’s a beautiful moment in the book where he says that such a thing could only be possible in New York Under the current administration when the outsider or the immigrant is increasingly being viewed with suspicion do you see these bonds between neighbours and strangers going down I still see Ali all the time — he’s just down the street and I often stop by just to say hello — and I do think it’s more important than ever to get to know one’s neighbours Under the current administration in the US not only people’s rights but also people’s lives are threatened in a way that I have not seen or experienced before in my 56 years This is a very troubling time But I am not without hope especially about the impact that organising resistance and activism can have Insomniac City is bookended by loss It reminded me of the writing of Joan Didion You mention in the book that Didion was part of your essential reading What does her work mean to you I was 16 when I first encountered Didion in 1977 with her newly published novel A Book of Common Prayer I spotted it at the small bookshop in my hometown I remember opening it to the first page reading the first sentence: “I will be her witness” I was captivated Two years later she published a very different book The White Album: a masterpiece of personal essays and first-person journalism I went on to read her earlier books and every new book as it came out It is Didion’s voice her literary voice — whether in fiction essays or narrative nonfiction — that resonates so strongly: the directness the cool tone and especially the sparseness of the writing combined with the seemingly unsparing view of herself I say ‘seemingly’ because as I have learned with my own work there’s far more craft involved in this kind of writing that the reader may comprehend Could you tell us about the early years of your acquaintance with Dr Sacks from the time when you were in San Francisco My publisher had sent him a copy of The Anatomist hoping he might provide a ‘blurb’ He didn’t — as he later explained he had gotten ‘distracted and forgot’ But after he had read the book he wrote a very cordial letter to me to say how much he’d enjoyed it — just one writer to another He explained in the letter that his parents had both been doctors and he’d grown up in a household with the classic 19th-century text Gray’s Anatomy the subject of my book From there we corresponded occasionally about books and writing and interests — an old-fashioned way of getting acquainted Which was the first book by Dr Sacks that you had read In college I read “The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat” but I have to admit: it didn’t make the impact on me that it has made on so many others around the world (I can’t tell you how often people have said to me that they ‘became a doctor’ or a research scientist or neurologist or social worker etc, so that they can produce a new generation before they are killed by predators.
