Wide Awake and Dreaming: A Memoir of Narcolepsy 

by Julie Flygare 

Winner of the San Francisco Book Festival Award for Biography/ Autobiography,  Wide Awake and Dreaming is a revealing first-hand account of dreams gone wrong with narcolepsy. It’s the brave story of one woman trampling over barriers and finding light in the darkest of circumstances.

Julie Flygare was on an ambitious path to success, entering law school at age 22, when narcolepsy destroyed the neurological boundaries between dreaming and reality in her brain. She faced terrifying hallucinations, paralysis, and excruciating sleepiness.

Narcolepsy was a wake-up call for Julie. Her illness propelled her onto a journey she never imagined, from lying paralyzed on her apartment floor to dancing euphorically at a nightclub; from the classrooms of Harvard Medical School to the start line of the Boston Marathon.
