Electric Literature interviewed Olivia Laing about her critically acclaimed essay collection, EVERYBODY. They rave: “EVERBODY is both timely and attentive to the long roots of history, both complex and accessible, as well as lyrical and instructive. Armed with a wellspring of research that spans 20th-century Germany, Britain, and the United States, from philosophy to psychology, art, medicine, and activism, Laing cuts a path through the difficult business of our bodily lives.

Norton & Company published the book on May 4, 2021.
