“I don’t sleep. Two o’clock comes and goes, then three o’clock. It’s four now. I know I won’t sleep a wink tonight. Earlier, I heard a thumping on the roof, like someone was up there mounting the house. I don’t dare go to the window but can only imagine that all the creatures of the night have awoken from their slumber.” (The Trip to Iceland)
