Product description

Review

A narrative written with immense vitality and, miraculously, the lightest of touches... It's a subversive love story that shouldn't work, but does.--Deborah Levy

[A] single moment in modernity, deconstructed by the savagely entertaining, Acker-inspired voice of Laing.

Laing...dunks you into the narrative and its fast-moving waters. It's only once you get to the end that you realize you've been holding your breath.

[A] pretzel twist of form and meaning... Laing strikes some terrific chords in this novel.--Dwight Garner

Crudo seduces from the very first sentence. Laing as Acker is not a literary device--it is literary detonation... Crudo is a hot, hot book.

Crudo could turn out to be a novel that we pick up years from now to remind ourselves how these times felt... Love may not be original, but this funny, fervent novel is.--Alexandra Schwartz

About the Author

Winner of the 2018 Windham-Campbell Prize for nonfiction, Olivia Laing is the author of three previous books of nonfiction, including The Lonely City, and one novel, Crudo. Her work has been translated into fifteen languages. She lives in London, England.
