Id stopped, somehow, poised, about to jump./em/ppGrowing up a good girl in an Irish-American family full of drinkers and terrible sleepers, Kathleen Frazier was twelve when her seemingly innocent sleepwalking turned dangerous. By day she was a popular A student, the star of her high school musical. At night, she both longed for and dreaded sleep./ppFrazier moved to Manhattan in the 1980s, hoping for a life in the theater but getting a run of sleepwalking performances instead.
