About the Author

Abbigail Nguyen Rosewood was born in Vietnam, where she lived until the age of twelve. She holds an MFA in creative writing from Columbia University and lives in Brooklyn, New York. Her debut novel, If I Had Two Lives, has been hailed as "a tale of staggering artistry" by the Los Angeles Review of Books and "a lyrical, exquisitely written novel" by the New York Journal of Books. The New Yorker called it "a dangerous fantasy world" that "double haunts the novel." Her short fiction and essays can be found at Electric Lit, LitHub, Catapult, The Southampton Review, The Brooklyn Review, Columbia Journal, and The Adroit Journal, among others. In 2019, her hybrid writing was featured in a multimedia art and poetry exhibit at Eccles Gallery. Her fiction has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, Best of the Net, and Best American Short Story 2020. She is the founder of Neon Door, a forthcoming immersive literary exhibit.


"Constellations of Eve, written in exquisite, pointillistic detail, is an impeccable title for Abbigail Rosewood's brilliant new novel. With each discrete episode chronicling Eve's life, Rosewood unflinchingly exposes the disturbing complexities, conundrums, and fears that accompany love, marriage, and motherhood. The honesty is sharp; the truth is piercing. Singularly, the crucial and definitive moments that define Eve's life are like stars, each startling unto itself. Collectively aligned, they lay bare the unexpected, yet inevitable, story of a unique and complicated everywoman who is not as happy as she ought to be."

--Binnie Kirshenbaum, author of Rabbits for Food and The Scenic Route
"Constellations of Eve is the faithful and meticulous rendering of a radical vision of life, love, art, lust, beauty, obsession, and death. The writing gives no quarter to what we might like to believe are 'normal' feelings and situations. Abbigail N. Rosewood brings back a bold and uncompromising report from the frontiers of the truth of human experience."

--Matthew Sharpe, author of You Were Wrong, Nothing is Terrible, Jamestown, and The Sleeping Father
