Elizabeth Gaffney with Rene Steinke. Elizabeth Gaffney was a staff editor for the Paris Review under George Plimpton's watch from to , and she is now editor-at-large for the literary magazine A Public Space. Gaffney's debut novel, Metropolis , is a remarkably rich and ambitious work set in New York City just after the end of the Civil War.

A capacious and frenetic novel about work, crime, immigration, race, and the evolution of a city, it is anchored to two of the grandest and most innovative structures of the time, New York's vast and elaborate sewer system and the Brooklyn Bridge, two engineering marvels that can be read as symbols of the two worlds Gaffney dramatizes, the underworld of the city's gangs, and the rarefied realm of art. Rene Steinke with Elizabeth Gaffney.

A finalist for the National Book Award , Holy Skirts is a fictionalized account of the life of a remarkable artist and audacious woman, the Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven, an ultra avant-garde, German-born artist, poet, daring performance artist, and agent provocateur. An enigmatic, androgynous, and eccentric figure with a shaved, sometimes shellacked head, teaspoons for earrings, and a cancelled postage stamp on her cheek, Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven challenged every convention known to gender and art over the course of her relentlessly adventurous, inventive, and theatrical life, greatly influencing better known artists, especially Marcel Duchamp.

Steinke's empathic, gorgeously written, and dramatic novel reclaims and interprets a rare spirit. Faith Sullivan. Faith Sullivan, who describes herself as a "demon gardener, flea marketer, and feeder of birds," has been writing novels since , and is best-known and most cherished for her stories of women and families living in Harvester, Minnesota, during the cruel years of the Great Depression and the two world wars.

Sullivan's novels are quietly powerful in their social and psychological insights and tremendous empathy for women forever caught in the double-bind of sexism. And Sullivan is incisive, uncommonly commonsensical, generous, and funny in person. Junot Diaz. Born in the Dominican Republic and raised in New Jersey, Junot Diaz wowed readers and critics alike with the potent short story collection Drown in Junot Diaz's intrepid and radiant first novel is The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao , a family saga that confronts the horrific brutality at loose during the reign of the dictator Trujillo.

Ann Patchett. Ann Patchett has the magic touch. Laser-smart and remarkably adept, she has created an entirely new universe in each of her resplendent novels. Taft won the Janet Heidinger Kafka Prize. So appealing is Bel Canto , it has been translated into 30 languages. Patchett's new novel is Run.

George Saunders. The most unnerving fiction boldly envisions the dire consequences of our most hubristic tendencies: our bottomless greed, maniacal competitiveness, hyper-materialism, environmental obliviousness, spiritual callousness, and fear of being different. This is George Saunders' territory. A writer of mordant wit and stinging insights following in the footsteps of Orwell, Bradbury, and Vonnegut, Saunders is a master of the surreal, or it is the ultra-real, short story.

Saunders has also written a live-wire satirical novel or fable, The Brief and Fright ening Reign of Phil , which is acquiring new power and relevance during this interminable presidential campaign, and a collection of fresh, hilarious, and profound essays, The Braindead Megaphone , in which Saunders' predilection for acrobatic parody and attunement to language's moral dimension are working in full force. But it's not all smooth sailing, Saunders was subjected to an appearance on The Colbert Report.

John Green entered the book world as an editorial assistant in the books for youth section at Booklist. Now he is a wildly popular young adult novelist. His first book, Looking for Alaska , a suspenseful tale set at a boarding school in Alabama, won the Michael L. Printz Award , and thrilled a great many readers from tweens to oldsters.

John Green writes for Mental Floss Magazine , and, thanks to his friendship with mathematician Daniel Bliss, a consultant for An Abundance of Katherines and a candidate for the Illinois state legislature, John Green has been featured in the Wall Street Journal for his innovation support it involves a liquefied Happy Meal of Biss's campaign on the video blog he shares with his brother, Hank Green www.

Valerie Wilson Wesley. Former executive editor of Essence magazine , and now a best-selling fiction writer , Valerie Wilson Wesley has channeled her insights into women's lives, how children learn, race and ethnicity, community, and moral dilemmas into several genres, from her marvelously smart and funny children's series, Willimena Rules , which includes How to Fish for Trouble and How to Lose Your Cookie Money , to her acclaimed and wildly popular mystery series starring Tamara Hayle. Hayle is an African American woman raising her son on her own, and story is told in Dying in the Dark and the forthcoming Of Blood and Sorrow.

Headin' West: A Novel by John L. Barlow, Paperback | Barnes & Noble®

Michael Chabon. Michael Chabon is a phenomenally imaginative, compassionate, funny, and soulful fiction writer who delights in bringing his exceptional literary gifts to genre fiction to create new and vital hybrids. He became instantly famous at age 25 with the publication of his first book, The Mysteries of Pittsburgh , and went on to write the compelling and many-faceted Wonder Boys ; the exquisite and tender short story collections A Model World and Werewolves in their Youth ; a homage to Sherlock Holmes, The Final Solution , and a fantasy novel for young adults, Summerland.

Every transporting book is a surprise, but Chabon's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay , a tale of two Jewish cousins who help create the golden years of comic book superheroes, is an extraordinarily generous and encompassing work about the legacy of the Holocaust and the liberating power of the imagination. Michael Chabon appeared on Open Books in May Sandra Cisneros. Sandra Cisneros, a poet and a fiction writer, was born and raised in Chicago, and the city plays a significant role in her work.

Cisnero's first novel, the groundbreaking The House on Mango Street , has been included on countless high school and college required reading lists, sold more than two million copies, and transformed American literature with its uniquely poetic take on that rite of passage known as coming-of-age, urban life, the immigrant experience in general, and that of Mexicans and Mexican Americans in particular. Woman Hollering Creek is a collection of funny, candid, and provocative stories about Mexican American girls and women.

The extraordinarily rich and enveloping Caramelo is a many-faceted multigenerational family saga that weaves back and forth between Chicago and Mexico, and the complications of private life and the influence of cultural icons. Cisneros appeared on Open Books in Davis traces the great singing web of life and the long-fingered shadow of death, and in The Thin Place , animal and plants are brought to conscious life as she explores the permeable divide between the past and the present, the living and the dead, the natural and the supernatural, the human and the divine.

This conversation took place when Kathryn Davis came to Chicago in February Stuart Dybek. A quintessential Chicago writer, Stuart Dybek grew up in the working-class neighborhood known as Pilsen, the setting for many of the stories in his celebrated collections, Childhood and Other Neighborhoods , The Coast of Chicago , and I Sailed with Magellan. A writer preternaturally attuned to both beauty and absurdity, the real and the surreal, Dybek's penetrating vision of Chicago's steely reality and penchant for risk-all romance underlies his exquisitely crafted, urban and down-to-earth, mischievously funny, and ravishing short stories and his poems, which have been collected in Brass Knuckles and Streets in Their Own Ink.

A generous teacher and mentor, Dybek inspires and supports many emerging writers. Jennifer Egan Egan is both a captivating storyteller and an incisive social observer. Creative and venturesome, she has taken a different approach in each of her fictional works, and all are shaped by her beautifully calibrated lyricism, precise psychology, uncanny insights into cultural trends, and keen satire. Egan is fascinated by the interplay between the world of appearances and the inner realm of feeling and thought, and considers with open-mindedness our longing for transcendence.

This preoccupation with the Wizard-of-Oz-like aspect of existence and our spiritual impulse shaped her accomplished first novel, The Invisible Circus. Emerald City and Other Stories is an outstanding collection of elegant and poignant short stories. In the novel Look at Me , Egan combines a penetrating look at the culture of the image, the fashion industry, and the shift from the industrial age to the information age.

In The Keep , a cleverly constructed riff on gothic novels, Egan carries forward her inquiry into our obsession with digital technologies and our sense of connectivity even when we're terribly alone. Jennifer Egan spoke about her work in Chicago in September Donald Evans. Chicago writer Donald G.

Evans is a former sports writer for the Chicago Sun-Times. He has also been an editor, photojournalist, reporter, teacher, and columnist. A former serious gambler and part-time bookie, he is now is a stay- at-home dad and a writer. His roguishly witty first novel, Good Money After Bad , revolves around a Chicago gambler named Chance living within earshot of Wrigley Field, and dangerously addicted to sports betting. Evans is a terrifically atmospheric writer, deftly evoking the world of bookies and compulsive gamblers, the tensions of in a big city undergoing lots of changes, a surreally severe heat wave, and the consequences of secret desperation.

Combining the blue-collar, neighborhood-anchored aesthetic Chicago writers are known for with a touch of suavely boozy noir, a sliver of medical-thriller action, and loads of charm, Evans tells a rascally and edgy cautionary tale. Donald G. Evans took a chance on Open Books in June Mary Gordon. Mary Gordon is fascinated with deception and contradiction, religion and art, family secrets and social upheavals.

Keir Graff. Keir Graff is a novelist from Montana living in Chicago where he is also editor for Booklist Online , and keeper of the blog, Likely Stories. Keir Graff spoke to Open Books in March Jane Hamilton. Perhaps living and working on a Wisconsin apple orchard inspires Jane Hamilton to take risks in her fiction. Nature, after all, is a grand experiment in the reconciliation of extremes as years of human effort can be erased in a matter of hours while life persists in the harshest and most volatile of circumstances.

In each of her five novels, she orchestrates seasons of suffering and amplitude, harrowing storms and epic droughts as she weighs the good and the bad in the repertoire of human behavior. Lyrical yet earthy, tragic yet droll, her complex tales of human quests for understanding are seeded in the stoic Midwest and rooted in extended families. Jane Hamilton appeared on Open Books in September Jamaica Kincaid.

Jamaica Kincaid is a persistently autobiographical writer whether she's writing about family, colonialism, or gardening, and her work is charged with a sense of urgency as she seeks understanding of the past and of how it shapes the present. Kincaid's fiction debut was the impressionistic story collection At the Bottom of the River. Annie John was her first novel, and the dawning of her signature voice with its deft interweaving of inner and outer realms, its exacting yet poetically resonant descriptions, and its incantatory musicality and stream of consciousness.

Other novels followed, including the intense and cathartic expression in The Autobiography of My Mother and Mr. Jamaica Kincaid spoke on Open Books in John McNally The author of a short story collection, Troublemakers, John McNally proved himself to be a smart and nimble comedic novelist in The Book of Ralph , a marvelously inventive coming-of-age story set in Burbank, Illinois, a seedy old suburb south of Chicago. In his second satiric tale of Midwest angst, America's Report Card , an even more mordantly hilarious and right-on tale, McNally returns to Burbank to tell the story of Jainey O'Sullivan.

On the verge of turning 18, she is burdened with a family beyond dysfunctional. McNally's flair for the absurd, poker-face humor, and hilarious critique of the fear-mongering Bush years, are matched by his pitch-perfect ear for dialogue, sure pacing, and tender regard for humankind. Joe Meno Comedic, imaginative, empathic, and romantic, Chicago writer Joe Meno is particularly attuned to the intelligence and sorrows of children, and to the ways childhood haunts our adult lives.

And as different as each of his works are--from his short story collection Bluebirds Used to Croon in the Choir to his novels Tender as Hellfire , How the Hula Girl Sings , Hairstyles of the Damned , and the truly remarkable The Boy Detective Fails -- Meno is consistently compassionate in his approach to loneliness and loss, the poignancy of our effort to combat chaos with reason, and the terror of realizing that the everyday world is full of menace.

And yet, Meno's characters discover that there is power in kindness, intelligence, and persistence. Joe Meno was a guest on Open Books in September Lydia Millet. The bewitchment of Millet's unusual fiction derives from its fusing of lyrical realism with precisely rendered far-outness, her heightened social conscience, and her gift for cloaking moral and spiritual inquiries within inventive plotlines and the psyches of deep-feeling characters. In Everyone's Pretty , a pornographer, his pious sister, a midget, a math prodigy, a bombshell, and a Christian Scientist ponder sex, God, and the search for meaning.

Oh Pure and Radiant Heart is a brilliant and madcap novel about the collision between science and faith and the dark discovery that forever altered life on earth, the making of the atomic bomb. How the Dead Dream is a haunting novel about suffering of animals as humankind becomes the dominant force on the planet and we enter an age of extinction. A profoundly humanist and satirical writer in the constellation that includes Twain, Vonnegut, Murakami, and DeLillo, Millet is a write ascending.

Audrey Niffenegger Audrey Niffenegger, a Chicago writer and an artist who makes fine art books the old-fashioned way, is best-known for her first novel, the internationally acclaimed bestseller novel, The Time Traveler's Wife , an evocative blend of science fiction and straight-ahead literature. Niffenegger's stunningly moody prints possess the sly gothic subversion of Edward Gorey, the emotional valence of Edvard Munch, and her own brilliant use of iconographic pattern, surprising perspective, and tensile line in the service of a delectably otherworldly sensibility.

This conversation took place in September Harry Mark Petrakis Harry Mark Petrakis is a quintessential Chicago storyteller, one of the most compelling and venerable writers ever to walk this blustery city's streets and look into the heart of its struggling and blessed citizens. Petrakis is also a memoirist and essayist; his collections include the wonderfully candid and very moving Tales of the Heart. A legend and an inspiration to many, a man of warmth and wisdom, Harry Mark Petrakis has seen many changes in life and literature.

He appeared on Open Books in March Alexis Pride. Chicago writer Alexis J. Pride is a playwright, producer, founder of the AJ Ensemble Theater Company, a professor of creative writing at Columbia College Chicago, and a fiction writer. Her first novel, Where the River Ends , is a fiery fictionalization of the life of a revolutionary and controversial Chicago educator, Corla Hawkins, known far and wide as Momma Hawk. Pride's protagonist, Emma Rivers, battles her way through a rough girlhood on the South Side during the s.

She found refuge in books, but suffered betrayal and violence at the hands of those she loved best. Emma struggles mightily against great odds to get control of her life, becoming a teacher and a principal renowned for her unorthodox style and profound dedication to inner-city children.

Pride's intense and insightful novel dramatizes the trauma engendered by the cruel matrix of poverty, racism, and sexism in an indelible portrait of a courageous teacher able to transform the lives of neglected teens because she needs them as much as they need her. Alexis Pride appeared on Open Books in May Susan Straight. Susan Straight writes empathic and dramatic fiction about family, race, class, immigration, men and women, and the long shadow of slavery. Straight is also a superlative essayist and writes commentary for National Public Radio. The recipient of a Lannan Foundation Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship , she teaches creative writing at the University of California at Riverside, her lifelong hometown.

Susan Straight spoke on Open Books in May Read an excerpt of the transcript of her interview. Mark Swartz. Mark Swartz is nervy, inventive, and very funny writer, a satirist intrigued with individuals and societies run amok. Swartz suggests that reading can become a perilously isolating and alienating obsession, and that the library can be an overwhelming and bewildering labyrinth, an oppressive manifestation of the mind's complexity and humanity's folly. In H2O , Swartz zaps forward in time to depict Chicago as a chaotic and decrepit city-state.

Clean tap water is but a cherished memory, so toxic is Lake Michigan. In fact, the earth's entire freshwater supply is imperiled. Enter Hayden Shivers, a hapless filter and drain engineer who discovers a miracle. Swartz's shrewd, jittery, and noirishly atmospheric speculative tale about a bumbling antihero and dire environmental trauma brings an irreverent and parrying voice to ecofiction and casts a fractured light on follies petty and catastrophic. Mark Swartz appeared on Open Books in January Jean Thompson Heartland writer Jean Thompson forges adept and imaginative tragicomedy fueled by her fascination with just how awry things can get and just how outrageously we can run amok.

Evincing a dry and precise wit and an impressive fluency in inner monologues induced by long-stoked anger, self-loathing, and loneliness, she portrays people on the edge in her moody short story collections -- The Gasoline War s , Little Face and Other Stories , and Who Do You Love , a finalist for the National Book Award -- and her well-wrought novels, including Wide Blue Yonder and City Boy , a portrait of a catastrophically malignant marriage.

Thompson continues to explore the dynamics between men and women, as well as the diminishment of rural life, family weirdness, what being female is really about, and living in war time in her spectacular collection of pitch-perfect short stories, Throw like a Girl. Jean Thompson appeared on Open Books in June Hillary Carlip brings high energy, high standards, unbridled creativity, an effervescent sense of humor, and deep insight into everything she does.

A performer as well as a writer, Hillary's penchant for alternative personalities finds extraordinary expression in A la Cart: The Secret Lives of Grocery Shoppers , a book of stories and photographs in which Carlip transforms herself into 26 diverse and compelling characters based on her extensive collection of lost-and-found shopping lists. According to Booklist that would be me :. A populist Cindy Sherman, an American Tracey Ullman, a female Eddie Murphy, and a disciple of Lily Tomlin, Carlip used her quirky collection of discarded shopping lists as inspiration for 26 characters, assuming the identity of men and women shoppers of various ages, backgrounds, and preoccupations.

Each of Carlip's ingeniously composed, funny, and insightful vignettes is a microcosm of struggle and hope. Hillary Carlip is also a fabulously talented web designer. In fact, you're experiencing one of her online creations this very moment.
