Author of the Month

Lauren Elkin

It is a new month and littératrice Lauren Elkin, much loved by the shop since Flaneuse (2017), is amazing us with Art Monsters: Unruly Bodies in Feminist Art, examining many of our favourite works and directing us towards new ones.

Lauren Elkin is the author of several books, including Flaneuse: Women Walk the City and No. 91/92: notes on a Parisian commute. Her essays on art, literature and culture have appeared in London Review of Books, the New York Times, Granta, Le Monde, Les Inrockuptibles, among others.

She is also an award-winning translator, most recently of Simone de Beauvoir’s previously unpublished novel The Inseparables .
