Suppose a Sentence: Brian Dillon and Olivia Laing

‘The thing that’s catching my ear, eye and mind is always this sense that this well-made object is also falling apart, or is shaking itself to pieces in some ways.’

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.

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