Collection: Olivia Laing's Picks

We’ve asked some friends of the shop to let us know what they’ve been reading this year. Here, Olivia Laing, author of Funny Weather and The Lonely City, shares some winter favourites.

‘At this time of year I want books that inspire dreams and nurture possibilities. For full impact, The Dark is Rising is best read by an eleven year old at tea-time on the winter solstice, but its enchantments are open to adults too. Angela Davis and Anne Boyer write with furious clarity on the prison system and healthcare, respectively, while John Berger and Caroline Zoob offer landscapes to muse over on a winter night. It’s dark and cold out, the perfect time to plot future gardens and plant seeds for a better world.’
