Suppose a Sentence: Brian Dillon and Olivia Laing

Writer and critic Brian Dillon’s latest book Suppose a Sentence (Fitzcarraldo) is a series of essays, each of them taking as its pretext a single sentence drawn from literature. What emerges is a dazzling experiment in criticism, a personal and at times polemical investigation of style, meaning and sense.

Brian Dillon was in conversation about his work with Olivia Laing, author of Funny Weather and Crudo.
