CRUDO by Olivia Laing

Olivia Laing’s debut novel CRUDO is a finalist for the 2018 Goldsmiths Prize. The judge Adam Mars-Jones calls it a “novelistic fusion cuisine, with life writing and literary ventriloquism served on the same tasty plate.”

CRUDO was also reviewed in the New York Times Book Review by Katie Kitamura, who called it “Slim and audacious… Written with bristling intelligence…. Crudo begins as a piece of conceptual swagger, only to morph into something far more intimate and in some ways more exceptional.”

Norton published the book on September 11, 2018.
