Biography

Idra Novey is the author of "Exit, Civilian," selected for the 2011 National Poetry Series. The Wall Street Journal compares her first novel, the recently-published "Ways to Disappear," to a Coen brothers movie, and calls the book "a spare, witty riddle of a novel." Novey's poetry and fiction have been translated into seven languages and have been featured on NPR’s "All Things Considered" and in Slate, StoryQuarterly, Paris Review, and Guernica. She has translated several books from Portuguese and Spanish, including Clarice Lispector’s novel "The Passion According to G.H." Born in western Pennsylvania, she has lived in Chile and Brazil and now lives in Brooklyn. She teaches in the Creative Writing Program at Princeton University.
