Olivia Laing's first book To the River is about a midsummer journey down the river Virginia Woolf drowned in. It was a Book of the Year in the Independent, Financial Times and the Evening Standard. Her fourth and newest book of non-fiction is the incredibly beautiful and psychically timely Funny Weather: Art in an Emergency, (the book on our nightstands). Here she shares some of her favourite films, books and comforts for these weeks of being at home.
