Orli Vogt-Vincent

In non-fiction, I love (primarily) female-driven works which interrogate and critique aspects of popular culture, feminism, and art in all its forms, or which accessibly explore sex and relationships, health and lifestyle, and self-development in new, risky, and empowering ways.  Favourites of mine include You Could Make This Place Beautiful by Maggie Smith and Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski. I am also an avid reader of serious history, and love to read works which fuse political and cultural history with memoir, such as East West Street by Philippe Sands and We Don’t Know Ourselves by Fintan O’Toole.

In fiction, I am drawn to works of literary fiction which have engrossing plots at their centre, and which raise questions about language and identity,  the intersection of the personal and the political, performance and literature, and love. I am particularly drawn to stories set during, or notably in the aftermath of, historical conflicts. Novels I’ve loved recently include In Memoriam by Alice Winn and Moving Kings by Joshua Cohen.
