Ann Harleman is the author of two short story collections—Happiness, which won the Iowa Short Fiction Award, and Thoreau’s Laundry—and two novels, Bitter Lake and The Year She Disappeared. In an earlier life, having been the first woman to receive a Ph. D. in linguistics from Princeton, Harleman lived and worked behind the Iron Curtain. Now happily living within sight of San Francisco Bay, she is on the faculties of Brown University and Stanford University. She can be reached through her website, www.annharleman.com.
I presently live in Jamestown, Rhode Island. I write fiction, flash fiction, and memoir; most recently, I won first prize for my story, "Countdown to Zero" which will be exhibited with its partner artwork in April at the ArtHaus Gallery in San Francisco. I also love teaching, and at present, teach creative writing at the Learning Connection in Providence.
