Bella Pollen’s memoir Meet Me in the In-Between begins with Pollen’s decision to examine her past in a desire to move forward. It chronicles a journey through her transatlantic upbringing in both Upper Manhattan and London, her early marriage to the son of a mafia member, and a friendship with a band of smugglers in Mexico. Described as “frequently disturbing, often very funny” and “unforgettable” by The Daily Telegraph, Pollen’s memoir is a captivating mix of both humor and pain as it reimagines what life is like when torn between family and freedom, and convention and adventure. Sponsored by the Creative Writing program.
