Chelsea Hodson with Christopher Frizzelle

New York-based writer Chelsea Hodson has had work in such publications as The New York Times Magazine, Frieze, The Lifted Brow, and Black Warrior Review. Various of these essays and others have now come to book form in her new book, Tonight I’m Someone Else (Henry Holt and Company). Tonight, her ‘I’ will be onstage with the ‘someone else’ that is Christopher Frizzelle of The Stranger.  

"Chelsea Hodson tests herself against her desires, grapples with their consequences, and presents a surgically precise account of what they were to her. These essays are bewitching—despite their discipline and rigor, you can smell the blood." —Sarah Manguso.

"Reading Hodson's work feels risky; it's breathtaking, both in its inherent exhilaration and also, often, because it's funny. . .But it also makes you feel connected to things, as if you are forging new relationships to the things and people in the world around you, uncovering new understandings about permanence, about intuition, about love and sex and lies and secrets and truth, about life." — Nylon.
