My first book will be published in the United States by Bloomsbury in 2019! It is a book-length essay with the provisional title The Longing for Less, an exploration of minimalism and the human drive to reduce and find beauty in absence, across history and cultures. Connecting Greek philosophers, Zen monks, Minimalist artists, and 21st-century cleaning gurus, it’s an attempt to figure out just what is so appealing about austerity.
