WILLA AND HESPER
A soul-piercing debut that explores the ways that past and present intertwine, queerness, and coming of age in uncertain times.
In poetic, episodic chapters, talented debut author Amy Feltman explores modern female identity, the tangle of family memories, and rich emotional landscapes of romance and history.
Hailed by author Laura van den Berg as "a striking new talent," Amy Feltman received her M.F.A. in Fiction from Columbia University in 2016 and now works at Poets & Writers Magazine. Her stories have been published in numerous literary journals, and her short story, "Speculoos," was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in 2016 and was long-listed for Glimmer Train's Short Story Award for New Writers. An excerpt from "Willa and Hesper" appeared in Cosmonauts Avenue. She was a semi-finalist for the 2015 Disquiet Literary Prize and attended the Disquiet Literary Conference in Lisbon, where she studied with Alexander Chee. She has published interviews with Ali Smith, Laura van den Berg, Heidi Julavits, Nell Zink, and Miranda July, in publications like The Believer, The Rumpus, and The Millions. At Columbia University, she studied with Heidi Julavits, Sheila Heti, Karolina Waclawiak, Porochista Khakpour, Sonya Chung, Christine Schutt, and Stacey D'Erasmo, among others.
