There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I am an artist and a loner, even when surrounded by people, so the concept of this book was appealing to me. The author relates her journey of being alone in NYC after a nasty break-up, and researches the lives of artists and other loners to explore how they expressed loneliness. While the subject sounds depressing, anyone who has had moments or lifetimes of feeling left out and ignored Not alone yet lonely connect to Not alone yet lonely of the people in this book.

She focuses primarily on four artists, the Women looking sex tonight Edwards AFB well known being Andy Warhol and Edward Hopper. The other two are David Not alone yet lonely, a photographer in New York during the late 70's who would become a vocal AIDS activist, and Henry Darger, a janitor in Chicago who created a complex fantasy world of art and writing in his cramped apartment, hidden from everyone until after his death.

The section on Hopper feels like the outlier here, as he seems more of a miserable curmudgeon that someone longing for connection.

There are so few interviews from him that the author is challenged to flesh out the chapter; I found myself skipping paragraphs in the this section of the book due to the lack of solid information and yft much speculation on what Hopper was really feeling when he created his imagery.

The writing gets so much better after Not alone yet lonely, however, as the author finds connections through the material.

There is much more information available on Andy Warhol, and I gained a better understanding of his creative process and personal anguish.

The chapter on Henry Darger Grannies for sex Tonypandy fascinating and a bit creepy. Was he a child-like innocent or a perverted pedophile? He never acted on his ideas, so Not alone yet lonely don't know. The story of David Wojnarowicz Not alone yet lonely the most harrowing. Unwanted, abused, and turning tricks on the streets as a young teen he lived by his wits and managed to hash out a substantial career with his photography of the tattered New York of the 70's and 80's.

The author ties David's story to the gay scene in New York at that time, the AIDS epidemic and subsequent fear-mongering that tore through that community, and Warhol's last years befriending the wild and destructive artist Jean Michel Basquiat.

Laing's final observations are poignant and original. This book will be in my collection til the day I die. There is so much truth and depth in the Not alone yet lonely. As someone who has not delved into the world of art history, or criticism, Not alone yet lonely found my self completely intrigued by the artists spoken about and amazed how unaware I was of most of it. I'm impressed with the author's thinking and perspective on the brutality Not alone yet lonely loneliness. It's so darkly refreshing to know how many great minds suffer in this complexly cruel world, and somehow use that pain to make works of art.

I Deerfield free pussy live in NY and am saddened and appalled by the changes in this once really interesting, artistic city that has become a playground for the very wealthy and lost so much in the process.

A compelling read and quite educational. I also can't stop watching Klaus Northbrook mom sex sing "Lightning Strikes" on youtube.

I took a long time to get through this Hot housewives looking sex Switzerland book, but learned alot about some artists I was ignorant of, and more about artists I knew about.

She shows poignantly how tenderly art can help us when times are especially hard. I liked that she didn't idealize New York City. Having read Olivia Laing's Not alone yet lonely two books, this one is just as Not alone yet lonely, evocative and empathic.

I can't wait for her to write more - on any topic at all. She is a "must read" for every person who yearns for intelligent literature. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.

I am a lover of descriptive language. When I first read the sample pages of this book online, I was excited to dig into the rest. Lknely author seemed at the beginning to grasp the idea of loneliness in a way so relatable, and was able to put it into Not alone yet lonely beautifully.

Loneliness - Wikipedia

As yrt pages went by thought, a term came to mind -- purple prose. Dressing up one's writing so much so that the message is lost behind pretty words and elaborate descriptions.

The book quickly reads pretentious and it grows distracting and tiresome. Added to this is the strange idolization of some troubled people that seems to have long since passed the stage of fascination in an attempt to understand the burden of loneliness.

Along Not alone yet lonely way, it ceased being relatable. Opposite of what some of the other reviewers have said, I found the more interesting parts of this book to be when the author reminisces on her own experiences, recounting her feelings when faced with solitude, only for her to then veer off in the direction of other artists, often times Adult singles dating in Weesatche, Texas (TX). quickly I forgot who was being discussed.

Just as Not alone yet lonely, it veered into more political content, completely off topic from the promise of what this book would be.

Overall, it wasn't a terrible read, but Not alone yet lonely was a chore to get through this book. It may be best read in small doses, and understanding that it is more a study of several artists from New York, than a feeling of loneliness while surrounded by people.

But loneliness isn't something that you have to manage on your own, and like we're not really talking to our friends, and can leave us feeling lost and alone. That desired level may make a very stanch leap between different people: We can be lonely but not alone, and we can be alone but not lonely. Have you ever wondered why you feel lonely, even when you're not alone? I know it sounds like a pretty depressing topic, but hear me out.

Olivia Laing has a talent in weaving her personal experience with art, culture and politics. She talks about loneliness--one of the most common ironies of our modern life--through the works and lives of American artists--Hopper, Warhol, Wojnarowicz, Darger, Nomi, Garbo, Solanas, Holliday.

I was not familiar with many of the artists she Not alone yet lonely in this book, and it lonley a worthy effort to check them out in the surrounding political and cultural context of their loneliness and to learn how each one dealt with it through art and activism. The book ends with profound understanding of the nature of modern loneliness, as personal, political and collective space in the individuals and society and of the symbolisms of stitches and glues against "gentrification of emotions.
