Lauren Oyler: No Judgement

40 min listen

In This Episode

This week’s Book Club podcast sees me speaking to the critic and novelist Lauren Oyler about her first collection of essays, No Judgment: On Being Critical. Lauren and I talked about the freedoms and affordances of the essay form; about how making and criticising art has been changed – and hasn’t – by the advent of the digital age; why it’s weird we all still treat the internet as if it’s a new thing; and about why David Foster Wallace can still be a role-model even after his cancellation.
