About the Author

Ari Braverman is the winner of the 2012 James Knudsen Prize in Fiction and a finalist for the 2017 White Review Short Story Prize. Her work has appeared in leading literary journals including Guernica and Bomb. This is her first novel.


"I can't think of a young writer more exactingly hilarious and insightful than Ari Braverman. She writes short little prose bombs that unleash wit and insight and a kind of addictive strangeness, showing that she knows and sees our disturbing world and, amazingly, can bring it perfectly to life on the page." --Ben Marcus, author of The Flame Alphabet

"The Ballad of Big Feeling dug itself right into my bones on the very first page, with a voice and precision that feels both intimately familiar and achingly strange. It's the most aptly-named book I can think of: lyrical and rich, big-hearted and bold." --Juliet Escoria, author of Juliet the Maniac

"An exquisitely observed debut--funny, horny, singular and sad--and gleaming with sentences that deliver welcome shivers of recognition. With big feeling and fine detail, Braverman pays radiant attention, and in so doing refashions the way a person might see the world." --Hermione Hoby, author of Neon in Daylight
