Goddard MFA Alumna Cara Hoffman’s New Novel in the New York Times

Goddard MFA  alumna Cara Hoffman‘s latest novel, Running, is reviewed in the New York Times Book Review.  
In the review, Justin Torres writes, “”Hoffman impressively evokes the combination of nihilism, idealism, rootlessness, psychic and economic necessity, lust and love that might set a young person adrift. Unlike the runaway heroes of many queer narratives these characters are not cast out but looking to get lost…The Athens on display here is peopled with rebels and runaways of all kinds, idealists, revolutionary operatives, con men, wayward young scholars, squatters…In Bridey and Milo Hoffman has created memorable anti-heroes: tough and resourceful scarred, feral and sexy. The book and the characters refuse to conform and Running like all good outlaw literature takes sharp aim at the contemporary culture’s willingness to do so.”  You can read the full review here.
Her essay, “Vanishing Point,” recently appeared in The Paris Reviewas part of the Revisited series, in which writers look back on a work of art they first encountered long ago. In the essay she revisits Giorgio de Chirico’s “Mystery and Melancholy of a Street.”
