Biography

Ellen Ullman is the author of the cult classic memoir Close to the Machine: Technophilia and Its Discontents and The Bug: A Novel, a runner-up for the PEN/Hemmingway award for first fiction, both books drawing upon her long experience as a software engineer. Her most recent work is the novel By Blood, a New York Times Notable Book for 2012, which Kirkus Reviews describes as a book that "thematically interweaves fate, identity, obsession, and genetics, a multilayered mystery (in the same way that Dostoevsky was a mystery writer)." Ellen Ullman's essays and opinion pieces have appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Salon, and Harper's, as well as in several "Best Essay" collections.
