  • USA

Lorrie Moore was born in Glens Falls, New York in 1957. She is an associate professor of English at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Her first book, Self-Help (1985), a collection of stories, won her critical acclaim for its humorous parody of the popular self-help books of the time period. The collection was also well regarded for its experimentation with second-person point of view in fiction. Since then she has published three short stories collections, a children’s book, and three novels. Her novels continue her theme of subverting readers’ expectations in relation to nonfiction genres with contemporary humor, sharp wit, and increasing depth and poignancy. She is also a regular contributor to the New York Review of Books on literature and film. Moore is considered one of the prominent voices in American literature today and has won numerous prizes for her work including the National Endowment for the Arts Award and the O. Henry Prize.
