Alethea Black Print Email

Alethea Black's work has won the Arts & Letters Prize, has been cited as distinguished in The Best American Short Stories, and has appeared in numerous literary magazines. Her debut collection of short stories, I KNEW YOU'D BE LOVELY (Broadway Books/Random House) will hit bookstores a week from Tuesday. It has been called "smart ... full of heart" by Joan Silber and "downright brilliant" by Robert Olen Butler. The penultimate story features a character known as Ace who took the SATs stoned and still got a nearly perfect score, has a tattoo of Chaucer on his left biceps, and is attempting to rewrite the Bible in the anapestic tetrameter of Dr. Seuss. He is, naturally, a Harvard graduate.
