In her new novel, Ultraviolet (Catapult, 2018), BC Professor of English Suzanne Matson tells the story of three generations of women, shining a light on the complexities of marriage, motherhood, aging, and the end of life. Spanning 80 years and two countries, Ultraviolet reveals the drama that is within every existence and the strengths and fragilities of people’s relationships with others. Matson will read from Ultraviolet at a Dean’s Colloquium on Sept. 13 at 4:30 p.m. in Gasson Hall, room 100. Matson is a poet and author of the novels The Hunger Moon, A Trick of Nature, and The Tree-Sitter. Read a piece drawn and adapted from Ultraviolet in the most recent issue of Boston College Magazine. | More from BC News.
