June 1, 2012: Sybil Baker

I met Sybil at AWP this year at the Vermont College of Fine Arts party. I had read bits and pieces of Talismans, her linked collection, and loved it, but was prevented from finishing by MFA demands. Check out Jodi Paloni’s review in Contrary, which is where I first heard of Sybil. I look forward to getting back to Talismans this month, and to reading Sybil’s second novel, Into This World, which comes out this month from Engine Books.

Come back on June 1st to read how Sybil Baker spends her days.

*The next writer in the series is announced on the 8th of each month so you can read ahead!
