Fiction

Interviewed by: Linda Sher

Catalog Number: 20021120, 20000524

Winner of the Associated Writing Programs Award for Short Fiction and a Pushcart Prize, Bonnie Jo Campbell reads from her resulting first book of short stories, Women & Other Animals. Campbell's imaginative stories include train wrecks, circus acts, river journeys, transpecies transmogrification, as well as growing up in Michigan. Published in 1999, the book has been described by Diane Glancy as “rowdy prose that portrays thunderous characters.” Campbell talks about her movement from mathematics to writing, and her response to the labeling of her work as “feminine grotesque.”
