Maud Casey and Stacey D’Erasmo
Thursday, April 14, 2022 Online
On Thursday, April 14, join A Public Space for a virtual event with authors Maud Casey and Stacey D'Erasmo for a conversation about Casey's most recent book, City of Incurable Women (Bellevue Literary Press).
“City of Incurable Women is a brilliant exploration of the type of female bodily and psychic pain once commonly diagnosed as hysteria—and the curiously hysterical response to it commonly exhibited by medical men. It is a novel of powerful originality, riveting historical interest, and haunting lyrical beauty.” —Sigrid Nunez
