Ann Harleman

Ann Harleman is the author of two short story collections, "Happiness," which won the Iowa Short Fiction Award, and "Thoreau’s Laundry" and three novels, "Bitter Lake," "The Year She Disappeared" and "Tell me, Signora," winner of the 2018 Elixir Prize. Among her awards are Guggenheim and Rockefeller fellowships, three Rhode Island State Arts Council fellowships, the Berlin Prize in Literature, the PEN Syndicated Fiction Award, the O. Henry Award and a Rona Jaffe Writer’s Award.

In an earlier life, having been the first woman to receive a doctorate in linguistics from Princeton, Harleman lived and worked behind the Iron Curtain and (more enjoyably) in Italy. Now happily living within sight of San Francisco Bay, she is on the faculty of Brown University.
