Today Mississippi-born author Catherine Lacey graces HENRY with her deep south hospitality and profoundly-felt fiction. In 2010 Lacey co-founded 3B, Brooklyn’s most bohemian bed and breakfast. A live-in collective of artists maintains 3B, and when not frying up breakfast frittatas or plotting itineraries for guests, there’s ample time to focus on creative projects. In Lacey’s case, composing Nobody Is Ever Missing, her debut novel, out in 2014.
Lacey invited HENRY to tour her B&B, ushering us into a sunlit living room where, perched among potted ferns and a gigantic stuffed strawberry, she read a passage of Nobody Is Ever Missing featured in McSweeney’s #43, which hits newsstands tomorrow. The excerpt is entitled “Moment Stay”, a desire we seconded again and again throughout the shoot.
