2017 tidings- The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone, Olivia Laing (2016)

I hope this book is as gratifying as these posts seem to suggest. Brainpickings have linked it to Arendt‘s loneliness and totalitarianism and Virginia Wolf’s loneliness and creativity . One of the most popular BCC culture’s posts was an extract by Laing on Edward Hopper. A book might be recommended by its hyperlinks- who knows.

I will be just waiting here for a paperback sometime in 2017.
