Kiese Laymon is a Mississippi based writer, who’s just released a new book titled "Heavy: An American Memoir." In it, he writes about his struggles with eating disorders and addiction, abuse, and his relationship with his mother. TriPod’s Laine Kaplan-Levenson sat down with Laymon to talk about what his students at the University of Mississippi think about New Orleans, his memoir, and how his literary success fits into a growing trend of black writers from the south receiving national attention.
