Carlene Bauer

Carlene Bauer GIRLS THEY WRITE SONGS ABOUT
Set in New York in the 1990s, this power ballad to female friendship and the bonds that can shape one more than any love affair is “A glittering novel . . . about the cycles of enchantment, disenchantment and re-enchantment that make up a life” (New York Times) and “A fantastically vivid story about feminism and friendship.” (People) “Razor-sharp ... Bauer tells a moving and thoughtful story of how desire and ambition change over time and how to make sense of the messiness of carving out a path and life of one’s own.” (Kirkus starred review) The author of two prior books, Carlene Bauer lives in Brooklyn, NY.

Paul Fisher

Paul Fisher THE GRAND AFFAIR: John Singer Sargent in His World
This new biography of legendary painter John Singer Sargent stresses the emotions and desires that drove his innovative work and defined the transatlantic, fin de siècle culture he inhabited. Fisher explores the enigmas of Sargent’s art and sexuality, granting the man and his paintings new life. “A vibrant, authoritative biography…a sensitive, nuanced portrait.” (Kirkus starred review) Paul Fisher is a biographer of the James family, historian of the Belle Époque, and contributor to the Gardner Museum 2020 pathbreaking exhibit, Boston’s Apollo. He is Professor of American Studies at Wellesley College.

Peter Orner

Peter Orner STILL NO WORD FROM YOU: Notes in the Margin
From the acclaimed writer about whom Dwight Garner wrote, “You know from the second you pick him up that he’s the real deal”, comes a magnificent sequence of short essays that meld his reading life with his own stories of loss and love, hope and despair. Early praise includes “a gorgeous and contemplative memoir” (Publishers Weekly starred review) and “An addictive collection... a wise, welcoming, heartfelt book.” (Kirkus starred review) Peter Orner is a prize-winning author of novels, short stories, and criticism. He is the Director of Creative Writing at Dartmouth College and lives in Norwich, VT.
