Daisy Lafarge and Rachael Allen: Life Without Air

‘I feel like human language is just a wider branch of a kind of multi-species bio-semiotics, where every species or being has its own language – I don’t really believe in human consciousness as being the pinnacle of the hierarchy of evolution.’

Daisy Lafarge’s Life Without Air (Granta), following on the tails of her pamphlets understudies for air and capriccio, is one of the mostly hotly-awaited debut collections of 2020. In this podcast, Daisy reads from the collection and is in conversation about it with Rachael Allen, author of Kingdomland (Faber) and Lafarge’s editor at Granta.
