Posts Tagged ‘The New Yorker’

The New Yorker released its list of 20 of the best writers under 40 earlier two weeks ago, which corresponds to the overall theme of this site (though some question the classification of “young fiction writer”).  Among the writers on the list is C.E. Morgan, author of All the Living.  Her story, “Twins,” (subscription required) and a short Q&A can be found in the summer fiction issue of the magazine.  Since I wasn’t able to interview Ms. Morgan when I reviewed her book, and because there are very few interviews with her on the web, I decided to link The New Yorker‘s Q&A to this site.

Here’s an excerpt:

The New Yorker:  How long did it take you to write your first book?

C.E. Morgan:  The first draft was written in fourteen days. The editing was completed in the course of two semesters in graduate school.
