Everybody by Olivia Laing


Bookseller Review by Kath:

‘Deeply researched, illuminating facts on ground-breaking and brave men and women, some of whom were unknown to me and whose stories I was so glad to hear. This book prods us into serious thought about how we use our bodies to protest, to love, to escape into, to connect with others, and so much more. Underground movements, psychoanalysis, prisons, civil rights, gay rights, music, art, migration, sex – how the human body has been treated, mistreated, swallowed up and risen up. Never a dull page. So much to savour.’

The author of The Lonely City takes readers on an ambitious investigation into the body in the twentieth century, using the life of the renegade psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich to chart an electrifying course through the great freedom movements of the era, from gay rights and sexual liberation to feminism and the civil-rights movement.
