Olivia Laing - You're Booked You're Booked

    • Books

This week we are thrilled to present an illuminating chat with one of our favourite all-time writers: Olivia Laing! Olivia is the author of To the River, The Trip to Echo Spring, The Lonely City and Funny Weather. Her novel Crudo was a Sunday Times bestseller, a New York Times notable book, shortlisted for the Goldsmiths and Gordon Burn Prizes and winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize. Her latest book is Everybody: A Book About Freedom. We talked to her about Warhol’s wigs, Kathy Acker as a teenage totem, Jilly Cooper revelations and a Henry James slam courtesy of John Cheever.
