The Lonely City by Olivia Laing

This is not a How to Be Alone (though Jonathan Franzen’s essay collection is worth reading); it’s an exploration into loneliness as represented in the art of lonely artists. Laing beautifully examines well-known artists like Edward Hopper and Andy Warhol and introduces us to lesser known and incredibly interesting people like Henry Darger and David Wojnarowicz. After reading this book I found myself wanting more “alone” time with art. The Lonely City is a meditative read. - Ashley
