An Evening with Zinzi Clemmons
|75||4 days|| |
Join us for a thoughtful conversation with Zinzi Clemmons, author of What We Lose, which Vogue calls "the debut novel of the year".
Zinzi Clemmons was raised in Philadelphia by a South African mother and an American father. She is a graduate of Brown and Columbia universities, and her writing has appeared in Zoetrope: All Story, The Paris Review Daily, Transition, and elsewhere. She is a cofounder and former publisher of Apogee Journal and a contributing editor to Literary Hub. She has been in residence at the MacDowell Colony, Bread Loaf, the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, and the Dar al-Ma'mūn, Morocco. Clemmons lives in Los Angeles with her husband.
What We Lose is a powerful and innovative novel that questions the nature of identity, grief and love through the eyes of a young woman who loses her mother to cancer. Told in visceral vignettes that draw from autofiction, online media and encyclopedias, What We Lose is a thoughtful, poignant debut from a promising new voice.
