Description

What would happen if a woman tried doing the things men get away with daily? Find out as award-winning actress and author Rachel DeWoskin reads from and signs her latest novel, Banshee.

 

ABOUT THE BOOK: By turns heart-wrenching, uncomfortable, and hilarious, Banshee explores the internal monologue and actions of a woman who, upon being diagnosed with cancer, tumbles head-first into a midlife crisis and decides to be unapologetic about it. Banshee is a critical addition to the feminist canon, giving the reader a dramatized glimpse into what happens when women step outside of society’s rules and expectations as wives, mothers, and working professionals—and instead choose to behave the way men do on a day-to-day basis.

 

RACHEL DEWOSKIN is the author of six books: BlindBig Girl Small, Foreign Babes in BeijingRepeat After MeSomeday We Will Fly, and Banshee. Her essays and articles have appeared in The New YorkerVanity FairThe Sunday Times Magazine of LondonTeachers and Writers, and numerous anthologies. She spent her twenties in China as the unlikely star of a nighttime soap opera, which became the basis for her memoir. DeWoskin is on the core fiction faculty at the University of Chicago, and is an affiliated faculty member of the Centers for East Asian Studies and Jewish Studies.
