Black Mountain Institute and The Writer’s Block are proud to present fiction writer Susan Steinberg. Machine, Steinberg’s first novel, surveys guilt and blame in the wake of tragedy. In lean, acrobatic prose, Steinberg subverts assumptions about narrative and challenges conventional gender roles. Join us as Steinberg discusses her work with Graywolf editor Steve Woodward.
Susan Steinberg is the author of Machine, Spectacle, Hydroplane, and The End of Free Love. She is the recipient of a United States Artists Fellowship, a National Magazine Award, and a Pushcart Prize. She teaches at the University of San Francisco.
Steve Woodward is an editor at Graywolf Press, where he has edited books of literary fiction and nonfiction by authors including Anna Burns, Jamel Brinkley, Esmé Weijun Wang, Daisy Johnson, Mark Doten, Benjamin Percy, and Susan Steinberg. Authors he has worked with have won the Man Booker Prize and the National Book Critics Circle award, and have been finalists for the National Book Award and the LA Times Book Prize.
