Olivia Lang: Crudo


Olivia Lang radically rewires the novel in a brilliant, funny and emphatically raw account of love in the apocalypse.  A Goodbye to Berlin for the 21st century, Crudo charts in real time what it was like to live and love in the horrifying summer of 2017, from the perspective of a commitment-phobic peripatetic artist who may or may not be Kathy Acker.

Fans of Laing's non-fiction works The Trip to Echo Spring and The Lonely City will find themselves afloat in familiar waters with 'Kathy', a voracious consumer of culture, as she is pulled from her comfortable, artistic world into the troubled realities of the Trump era.

Join the author in Waterstones Belfast as she reads and discusses her debut work of fiction.
