These two highly talented short story writers appeared together at Stellina last year, and we are delighted to have them back together again to discuss their current books and projects.
Edith Pearlman’s recent book, Binocular Vision, has won various awards, including the 2011 National Book Critics Circle Award. Author of more than 250 works of short fiction and non-fiction, her pieces have appeared in national magazines, literary journals, anthologies and on-line publications.
Jessica Treadway’s book, Please Come Back To Me, won the 2009 Flannery O’Connor Prize for Short Fiction and is just being issued in paperback. She is also the author of Absent Without Leave and Other Stories and the novel And Give You Peace, which Booklist called “a stunning exploration of a family’s devastating loss”. Jessica teaches writing and literature at Emerson College in Boston.
