IN THE BELLY OF HER GHOST
BY COLIN DAYAN
A memoir. LARB true stories.
"Colin Dayan 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 own life, onto her vexed relationship with her mother and subsequent suffering ― and she does so with her usual uncompromising clarity. It’s rare for such a tormented work to be so masterful. In the Belly of her Ghost is not exactly an easy read, but it’s also very hard to put down. "
- Madison Smartt Bell
Colin (Joan) Dayan is the Robert Penn Warren Professor in the Humanities at Vanderbilt University.
