G-d, Sleep, and Chaos is a prayer of thanks for a broken world.

Alan Fyfe’s debut collection employs a core of Jewish philosophy to explore themes of love, metaphysics, the self-destructive impulse, trauma, and the transcendent. With a boisterous affection for all things absurd and liminal and a bristling loyalty to working class aesthetics, G-d, Sleep, and Chaos includes poems that swing from visceral to hilarious across seven sections, and a range of forms, to ask how we might come by gratitude, and the peace of silence, in our bleakest moments. G-d, Sleep, and Chaos is a collection for the questing mind and the wanting spirit.
