About the Author

Terese Svoboda: The many faces of Svoboda's luminous writing include eleven books of poetry, fiction, translation and over 100 short stories. Trailer Girl and Other Stories, her third novel, was reissued in paper last fall. "Unnerve thyself: the violent and enthralling short stories in Trailer Girl detonate on contact," writes Vanity Fair. Her memoir Black Glasses Like Clark Kent was termed Astounding! by the New York Post, selected as a Japan Times Best of Asia 2008 book, and won the Graywolf Nonfiction Prize. Praised as a fabulous fabulist by Publishers Weekly for her last novel, Tin God, Vogue lauded her first, Cannibal, as a female Heart of Darkness. Svoboda is also the recipient of the Bobst Prize (for Cannibal), the Iowa Prize for poetry and the O. Henry Award for the short story. Her work has been selected for the Writer's Choice column in the New York Times Book Review, a SPIN magazine book of the year, and one of the Voice Literary Supplement's ten best reads. Her opera WET premiered at L.A.'s Disney Hall in 2005. She has taught at Sarah Lawrence College, The New School, Bennington, Davidson, University of Hawaii, U. of Miami, Fairleigh Dickinson, Williams College, San Francisco State College and the College of William and Mary and is teaching fiction this spring at Columbia's School of the Arts.
