About This Chick
Renowned oboist, founder of the first Southern Baptist poly-fidelity commune, cured pork-product aficionado and self-help guru, Bellamy Desmond has spent the last seven years in solitude and meditation on an inorganic lemur ranch in northwestern Wisconsin. She has emerged to share her unique perspective and lemur-loaf recipes with both her devoted fans and unwashed miscreants alike.
