A Trip to Echo Springs: On Writers and Drinking, Olivia Laing (Out now, Picador) Olivia Laing’s exploration into the lives of six of the most well-known literary drunks technically came out on December 31, 2013, but that’s basically January 1, 2014 in our book. A Trip to Echo Springs got a huge, well-deserved boost thanks to a front-page feature on the cover of the New York Times Book Review. Of course, its subject matter (John Cheever, Tennessee Williams, John Berryman, Raymond Carver, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and of course Ernest Hemingway) pretty much guaranteed the literary establishment would take notice, but the style in which Laing presents her subjects is earning the book extra acclaim. (via 10 Must-Read Books for January – Flavorwire)
Author of this #1 must-read pick Olivia Laing will be HERE on Tuesday, January 28 in conversation with The Paris Review's Lorin Stein. Don't miss it! Event info.
