Meg Wolitzer’s novels include The Uncoupling; The Ten-Year-Nap; The Position; and The Wife, among others. Her first novel, Sleepwalking, was published the year after she graduated from Brown University, and she has been living and working as a fiction writer ever since then. Wolitzer’s short fiction has appeared in The Best American Short Stories and The Pushcart Prize. She has taught writing at the University of Iowa Writers’ Workshop; the MFA program at Columbia University’s School of the Arts; Boston University; the University of Houston; Skidmore College; and the 92nd Street Y in New York City. In the summer she teaches at the Southampton Writers’ Conference on Long Island. Wolitzer has collaborated with singer-songwriter Suzzy Roche, of the Roches, on a series of songs based on works of literature. Her children’s book, The Fingertips of Duncan Dorfman, about kids who play competitive Scrabble, will be published in September.
