The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone
by Olivia Laing
Nonfiction | Memoir | Art | New York
MADE ME: want to learn more about artists mentioned in it like Edward Hopper, Andy Warhol, and David Wojnarowicz
Pub Date: March 1st, 2016
My Rating: ★★★★★
Humane, provocative and deeply moving, The Lonely City is about the spaces between people and the things that draw them together, about sexuality, mortality and the magical possibilities of art. It’s a celebration of a strange and lovely state, adrift from the larger continent of human experience, but intrinsic to the very act of being alive.
This is such an amazing book! I loved this! It made me feel understood, it made me feel. Very often I had to stop, reread some passage that especially got to me and think about it. And there were many such moments.
