Olivia Laing on THE LONELY CITY. With Dan Fox

Join the brilliant Olivia Laing for a reading and discussion of her latest book, The Lonely City, a stunning investigation of loneliness, its roots, and representations. Philip Hoare calls it an “endlessly, compulsively fascinating” read, and Adam Foulds, “a remarkable combination of personal mediation and psychological and artistic inquiry...superbly written, fascinating, and often sharply moving.” Olivia will talk about the book with Dan Fox, editor of Frieze Magazine.

Former Deputy Books Editor of the Observer, Olivia Laing is a columnist for frieze and writes for the Guardian, New Statesman,Observer and New York Times among many other publications. She is the author of three books, including The Trip to Echo Spring, and most recently The Lonely City.
