Join us at The Crib for a lively conversation between Kelsey Ronan--author of Chevy in the Hole, and Suma Rosen (from InsideOut Literary Arts Detroit).
Kelsey Ronan grew up in Flint, Michigan. Her work has appeared in Lit Hub, Michigan Quarterly Review, The Kenyon Review and elsewhere. She lives in Detroit and teaches for InsideOut Literary Arts. Chevy in the Hole is her first novel.
“There is a particular kind of melancholy endemic to cities in the industrial Midwest. Chevy in the Hole does a wonderful job of capturing this kind of melancholy... Ronan adeptly dramatizes one of the most dangerous monsters of addiction: self-loathing... [Gus is] thoughtful in every sense of the word — he’s kind and he thinks too much, and Ronan has a gift for propulsive sentences that make even his deeply interior moments somehow suspenseful and endearing.”
—Dean Bakopoulos, The New York Times Book Review
