As Fritz Chaleff states in his masterly review of the Coast (see it on our homepage); the 3rd Coast Café is blessed with some of the greatest thinkers and socialites throughout the entire city. One such Coast regular is Marianne Maili. Model, writer, teacher, actor, artist and all-around intellectual bad ass…
Marianne Maili was born and raised in Key West, Iowa. She obtained a BA in English Literature from the University of Iowa, then on to her own personal bildungsroman of travel, work and life around the world. While abroad, Marianne acquired a Certificate de Lange Française from the University of Paris-Sorbonne, an MA in Literature and Cultural Studies, along with a PhD in ‘The Construction and Representation of Cultural Identities’; both from the University of Barcelona.
An American and French citizen, she speaks fluent English, French and Spanish, and can translate from Catalan.
Lucy, go see.
Written in the German literary genre of a Bildungsroman — a novel based on a quest; usually focusing on the formative years, more specifically the psychological and moral growth of the protagonist from youth to maturity… Also known as a “coming-of-age” novel.
Lucy, go see is more of a coming-to-voice novel.
