Lauren Elkin

© Francesca Mantovani

Lauren Elkin’s essays have appeared in many publications, including The New York Times Book Review, frieze, and the Times Literary Supplement, and she is a contributing editor at The White Review. Her novel Floating Cities was published in French by Héloïse d’Ormesson, translated by Jean Lineker as Une Année à Venise. Her last book, Flâneuse (Chatto & Windus) is part cultural meander, part memoir, and traces the relationship between the city and creativity through a journey that begins in New York and moves us to Paris, via Venice, Tokyo and London, exploring along the way the paths taken by the flâneuses who have lived and walked in those cities.
