Nemonie Craven is the creator of How to Live, a project, founded with Shahidha Bari, dedicated to producing essays, images and arguments for a practical philosophy for life through the How to Live blog and a series of walks, talks and public lectures. How to Live engages entertainingly with contemporary life, artistic practices and current affairs. The blog, which has featured the work of dozens of artists, writers and academics, has attracted a wide international readership, drawn to the site for its idiosyncratic mixture of serious reflection and observational humour.
Craven and Bari are writing a How to Live guidebook, using philosophy and literature to steer a course through the difficulties of daily life. An accessible but intelligent book for the general reader seeking to create new maps of personal and political life, this guide will be a resource for those interested in asking vital questions about love, sex, art, literature, ethics, politics, friendship, war, violence, architecture, religion, walking, gardening, crying and laughing.
Nemonie Craven created and founded the How to Live project (see “Link to Author’s Website below) in a barn in France in the summer of 2008. She is also the founder of Goethe’s Elective Affinities Walking Group (London; New York; Bridgend) - notably leading a philosophical walk to Hay Bluff, which was a huge success at the How the Light Gets In festival at Hay-on-Wye, 2009.
Born in Bridgend, South Wales, Nemonie works as a literary agent with Jonathan Clowes Ltd, and is completing a PhD on love and war in the work of French Jewish philosopher Emmanuel Levinas. She has published widely on film, philosophy, and literature.
