Peter Ho Davies will be reading his fiction at 4 p.m. Tuesday, March 19, in the Sinquefield Stateroom in Dubourg Hall. Davies is the author of the novel The Welsh Girl and the story collections The Ugliest House in the World and Equal Love.
Born in Britain in 1966 to Welsh and Chinese parents, Davies now makes his home in the United States and teaches creative writing at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. The Los Angeles Times calls his characters "marvelously nuanced," and Newsday observes "Davies appears to be able to inhabit anyone."
