Chris Zielski is an artist and author from northeast Ohio. Girl in the Gray Sweater is a memoir-style collection of stories about marrying her farm-loving husband and moving to the country.
The name comes from her profoundly boring wardrobe. (She once did a whole load of laundry and folded nothing but gray sweaters.) Gustave Flaubert once said “Be boring and orderly in your life… so that you may be violent and original in your work.” Perhaps she’s perfected the first part, at least.
