Filled with titanic personalities and legendary authors, including the mysterious and iconic J. D. Salinger, My Salinger Year is a vivid, funny and charming coming of age story about a young woman trying to find her feet, and her voice. It is also a love letter to the vanishing world of old-fashioned publishing.
This book will be especially enjoyed by authors, poets, and publishers and indeed all involved in the world of books.
Her poetry has appeared in The Paris Review, Western Humanities Review, Kenyon Review, and other journals. She has degrees from Columbia University, University College, London and Oberlin College.
