Zinzi Clemmons, "What We Lose"

  • Big Blue Marble Bookstore (map)


We are honored to host Philly native Zinzi Clemmons and her debut novel What We Lose.

What We Lose is a powerful and innovative novel that questions the nature of identity, grief, and love through the eyes of a young woman who loses her mother to cancer. Told in visceral vignettes that draw from autofiction, online media, and encyclopedia, What We Lose is a thoughtful, poignant debut from a promising new voice.
