A really nice evening with Chloe Aridjis reading from her debut novel “Book of Clouds.” Books, conversation, aperitifs.  Few things about Chloe. She was born in New York and grew up in the Netherlands and Mexico City. After receiving a BA from Harvard, she went on to receive a PhD in nineteenth-century French poetry and magic in nineteenth century in France at Oxford. During our short conversation, she told me that her grandfather was from Smyrna, the modern İzmir in Turkey and she currently lives in London
