Colin Dayan & In the Belly of Her Ghost at Chevalier’s Bookstore

308b68_17d20a51e1304e0d8b701ec40036fcfa_mv2Join us to hear Colin Dayan, author of In the Belly of Her Ghost. The author has one of the most original minds in America and also one of the fiercest. Here for the first time she turns her rigorous intellect toward her vexed relationship with her mother, and subsequent suffering. Plus, she does so with her usual uncompromising clarity in a book that is not exactly an easy read, but one that’s hard to put down, according Madison Smartt Bell.

Colin (Joan) Dayan is the Robert Penn Warren Professor in the Humanities at Vanderbilt University, and the author of: Haiti, History, and the God, The Story of Cruel and Unusual, The Law Is a White Dog, and With Dogs at the Edge of Life. her memoirs of growing up in Georgia have been published in The Yale Review, Southwest Review, and LARB, among others.
