The Lonely City PDF

The Lonely City: Adventures in the Art of Being Alone is a non-fiction book written by Olivia Laing, a writer and critic. The book was first published by Picador in 2016 and, like Laing's previous works, it blends research, biography and memoir. The book explores the theme of loneliness through the lives and works of various artists, such as Edward Hopper, Andy Warhol, David Wojnarowicz, Nan Goldin, Henry Darger, Vivian Maier, Klaus Nomi and Josh Harris. The book also reflects on Laing's own experience of living alone in New York City after a painful breakup.

The book received critical acclaim and was nominated for the Goodreads Choice Award for Best Nonfiction in 2016. It has been translated into 17 languages and sold over 100,000 copies worldwide. The book has been praised for its insightful and compassionate analysis of loneliness and its connection to art, culture and society. The book also raises questions about how technology affects our sense of isolation and belonging in the modern world.
