Abstract:

Lorrie Moore is the author of the story collection Birds of America (described as "one of our funniest, most telling anatomies of human love and vulnerability" by The New York Times Book Review), Like Life, and Self-Help and the novels Who Will Run the Frog Hospital? and Anagrams. In her new novel, A Gate at the Stairs, Moore turns her eye to the anxiety and disconnection of post-9/11 America, on the insidiousness of racism, the blind-sidedness of war, and the recklessness thrust on others in the name of love. The New York Times calls it, "Her most powerful book yet ... The novel explores, with enormous emotional precision, the limitations and insufficiencies of love, and the loneliness that haunts even the most doting of families." Moore is a recipient of a Lannan Literary Fellowship for Fiction and is a professor of English at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.
