Sarah Manguso awarded Rome Prize

Four Way Books is delighted to congratulate Sarah Manguso, author of Siste Viator on receiving the highly sought after Rome Prize from the American Academy , chosen by the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Sarah Manguso will spend a year at the American Academy in Rome.

Of Siste Viator , Dave Eggers has commented: "Sarah Manguso, like her spiritual siblings David Berman and Tony Hoagland, is a friendly kind of savior and guide. Her writing is gorgeous and cerebral (imagine Anne Carson) but she doesn't skimp on the wit (imagine Anne Carson's ne'er-do-well niece)."

Congratulations, Sarah.
