First Fiction 2015

From the July/August 2015 issue of
Poets & Writers Magazine

In our fifteenth annual First Fiction roundup, five debut authors—Rebecca Dinerstein, Naomi Jackson, Julia Pierpont, Chigozie Obioma, and Angela Flournoy—discuss the process of seeing their novels to completion, from navigating the difference between poetry and prose to faithfully portraying an image of Detroit. Introduced by Darin Strauss, Tiphanie Yanique, Elliott Holt, Helon Habila, and Tayari Jones.
