The Lonely City
The Lonely City Adventures in the Art of Being Alone By Laing, Olivia Book - 2016

A really beautiful meditation on loneliness. The book doesn't really offer any tangible solutions, but shows what the effects and results of loneliness can be. It's more of an examination of a handful of artists and how loneliness played into their work, which I didn't expect going in but thoroughly enjoyed. As a whole the book is both validating and comforting to individual loneliness and helpful in viewing loneliness more universally. Particularly if you have any interest in recent (~20th century) art history, I'd highly recommend giving this a read!
