    'Go the F--- to Sleep': An ode to childhood insomnia

    Adam Mansbach was at home and supposed to be working on a book. He just couldn’t get his daughter Vivien, 2, to go to sleep.

    The Rutgers University professor and author had conquered the art of the novel, become intimately familiar with the rhyme schemes of rap, withstood the rigor of a master’s program in creative writing and demonstrated the skill required to teach in one. But he had no answer to this problem.

    “Look out for my forthcoming book, ‘Go the F--- to Sleep,’ ” he barked on Facebook, instead of speaking this aloud to his innocent babe, which was probably all for the best. The post got “liked” and commented on by friends, spurring Mansbach to actually pursue the idea.

    Out today, his book, “Go the F--- to Sleep” (Akashic Books) is an ode to childhood insomnia and ensuing parental frustration.

    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
