Lee Smith


"Ezekiel likes meetings as much as he likes fiddle music and black garter belts and dancing, and he makes no distinction among these things, which all comfort him." Lee Smith reads from her novel The Devil's Dream (Berkeley Books, 1992) at the New School. Smith's memoir, Dimestore: A Writer's Life (Algonquin Books, 2016), is featured in Page One in the March/April issue of Poets & Writers Magazine.
