Olivia Laing at Home

“The combination of gardening and writing works amazingly well for me. It’s such a nice antidote to writing books,” says author and critic Olivia Laing. In this NOWNESS video, Laing, whose most recent book is her first novel, Crudo (Norton, 2018), talks about the Cambridge home and garden she shares with her husband, poet Ian Patterson, and how her surroundings affect her creative life.
