Dewey Decimal Project: 700.19 LAI The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone

And now I enter theCover of The Lonely City 700s: Arts & recreation. In the generic category of “Arts” I decided to got with The Lonely City Olivia Laing’s book which is a mix of memoir and examination of the works of artists who treated on the topic of solitude.

The mixture of genres within this book worked extraordinarily well and struck me as a fantastic exemplar of the creative non-fiction genre. Enough time has passed since I’ve read this that I’m hard pressed to cite anything specific (it’s been over a year—I’m way behind on these blog posts), but I remember enough that I can wholeheartedly recommend the book to anyone who might be interested in it.
