4h Elena Ferrante: ‘At 30, I began taking sleeping pills, but slept only four hours a night’
The Guardian
Today, I don’t get much sleep at night, but I get enough in the early afternoon Long ago, I used to read and write as I waited for the moment of sleep. Soon I had to stop. Reading led me to a state of overexcitement: usually, one reads a few pages to fall asleep more easily, but the more I read, the more sleep passed me by. And it wasn’t a question of the quality of the books. Mediocre books, great books, novels, essays: sleep eluded me. Reading brought on a desire to write, and writing brought on a desire to read. The night passed without me closing my eyes and the next day was wasted. I was in a daze, I had a headache, I couldn’t do anything. It took me a long time to resign myself to the idea that, after eight o’clock at night, I shouldn’t open a book, and I shouldn’t write. It seemed a serious limitation, but it was necessary – not sleeping took away the desire to live. So I gave in, and for a while things improved. But during periods when I was writing for almost the whole day, my insomnia returned, and in a way that frightened me. I was sleeping, but had the impression that I was still writing, words and words.

19h A$AP Rocky: Testing review – twisted pretty-boy cranks up the weirdness
The Guardian
The rapper’s aversion to the mainstream takes his third album to some glorious heights, with the help of Skepta and Frank Ocean. But is his swaggering decadence wearing thin? A$AP Rocky’s great gift isn’t that he flies above rap trends ­– it’s that he contorts them at will. Who else could be pitched as the successor to New York’s golden-age legends while leaning on subwoofer-rumbling, screwed-up Southern hip-hop? Rocky is an ostentatious impresario who took hollowed-out cloud rap and Odd Future’s lo-fi aesthetic and made it all sound like high-end fashion. A$AP – real name Rakim Mayers – will flow over the kind the dusty boom-bap associated with the

With Tom Six announcing his latest piece of schlock-bait, The Onania Club, how best to ignore a man whose only remaining raison d’etre is provocation? Great news for people who like watching three minutes of a film in the middle of the night on SyFy, then feeling like you’ve seen enough of it to get the gist, then switching off and going to bed – Tom Six has got a new movie coming out. That’s right. You saw The Human Centipede, and were secretly disappointed that it wasn’t as interesting as the premise suggested. You saw The Human Centipede 2, then spent a full month wondering why you bothered. You ignored The Human Centipede 3, because you have a vague recollection of someone once telling you not to feed the trolls. And now it’s time for you to actively run away from The Onania Club.
