The Lonely City

Adventures in the Art of Being Alone, Nominiert: Gordon Burn Prize 2016

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2016 GORDON BURN PRIZE

When Olivia Laing moved to New York City in her mid-thirties, she found herself inhabiting loneliness on a daily basis. Increasingly fascinated by this most shameful of experiences, she began to explore the lonely city by way of art. Moving fluidly between the works and lives of some of the city´s most compelling artists, Laing conducts an electric, dazzling investigation into what it means to be alone, illuminating not only the causes of loneliness but also how it might be resisted and redeemed.
