Sunday, September 18th at 4 PM, Carmichael's is delighted to once again host Louisville Native, Sallie Bingham, for her latest book, Mending: New and Selected Stories. In Mending, Sallie Bingham follows the often brutal course of yearning and its disappointments with an emotional acuity both unflinching and vigilant. From the first assertions and compromises of sexuality - those accommodations that tug and chafe - to the constrictions of adulthood and, finally, the fixed contours of a maturity where need has been winnowed down, but so has our ability to accommodate, Bingham's stories radiate with an honesty that is as insistent as it is compassionate.
Praise for Sallie Bingham:
Mending collects stories from four books and includes six new ones, representing the best of Bingham's 50-year career.
