Eileen Pollack: Reviews, Readings

Eileen Pollack, author of the critically-praised and much-loved collection of short stories and novellas, In the Mouth (Four Way Books, 2008), is reading in several Jewish Book Network events, including at the Jewish Literary Festival in Washington, D.C., next week, September 22nd. If you're within travelling distance of D.C. go hear her, and find out why Stephen King called her "an American talent." Eileen will also be appearing at the Jewish Book Festival in Ann Arbor, MI, and the Jewish Book Festival in San Francisco, CA, both in November.

Eileen has recently received another two wonderful reviews, in Jewish Book World and in Ploughshares . Congratulations, Eileen!

Eileen also was quoted in the NY Times this week, asked for her opinion about the boundary between art and pranks. A busy week for this wonderful writer!
