Mary Gaitskill

Mary Gaitskill, author of three novels including “Two Girls” and “Fat and Thin,” will be in the Grace M. Hunt Memorial English Reading Room in the Humanities building for refreshments and a discussion of her work on March 6. Mona Simpson, professor of English, will then host Gaitskill for a reading at the Hammer Museum at UCLA at 7:30 p.m. followed by a book signing.

Gaitskill writes fiction and essays that peer into dark, taboo territories of sex and female desire. She has a forthcoming book of essays titled “Somebody With a Little Hammer.”
