Short biography
Bill Hayes is the author of three acclaimed works of narrative nonfiction, Sleep Demons: An Insomniac’s Memoir; Five Quarts: A Personal and Natural History of Blood; and his latest book, The Anatomist: A True Story of Gray’s Anatomy. His essays and articles have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Details, and The Threepenny Review, among other publications, and he has been featured on many NPR programs. “Bill Hayes has an unusual set of skills,” a critic for the New York Times has observed, “he is part science writer, part memoirist, part culture explainer.”
