Olivia Laing, Author, The Trip to Echo Spring

In this stunning work of unconventional biography, Laing delves deep into the lives of revered yet troubled writers: John Cheever, Raymond Carver, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams and poet John Berryman. She travels by train, plane and automobile from Key West to New Orleans, and from New York City to Washington state, seeing for herself the places that inspired their most famous works. Laing also penetrates the fascinatingly turbulent life of each author, revealing stunning truths about each one.
