Chloé Cooper Jones is a professor, journalist, and the author of Easy Beauty, a memoir which finds the author—after unexpectedly becoming a mother—embarking on a journey across the globe to reclaim the spaces, both physical and emotional, that she’d been denied and denied herself. “Perceptive, stylish, and darkly funny, Easy Beauty is an act of grace, and a reckoning” writes Anna Wiener of the profound debut. She is also a contributing writer at The New York Times Magazine and was a 2020 Pulitzer Prize finalist in Feature Writing for her article “Fearing for His Life,” a profile of Ramsey Orta, the man who filmed the killing of Eric Garner.
