Monday, March 26, 2012
Poetry Center - 3rd floor of Sawyer Library

Deb Olin Unferth is the author of the story collection Minor Robberies, the novel Vacation, and the memoir Revolution: The Year I Fell in Love and Went to Join the Sandinistas, a finalist for the 2012 National Book Critics Circle Award. Her work has been featured in Harper's Magazine, McSweeney's, The Believer, and the Boston Review. She teaches at Wesleyan University and currently lives in New York.

Of some recent works:

Time Out New York says, "Revolution calls itself a memoir, but it's something altogether stranger and more dazzling: It's a virtuosic one-woman show...It's smart, stylish, compulsive reading: memoir at its best."

Aimee Bender says, "Unferth writes like a musician plays, weaving images and themes and melodies with these beautifully rhythmic, funny, heartbreaking sentences. The whole novel should be read aloud and relished."
