Dani Shapiro

Bestselling novelist and memoirist Dani Shapiro has made a career plumbing the depths of her own romantic and family relationships as well as those of her fictional characters. She has thoughtfully and fearlessly explored the many tragedies and triumphs of her own life in her memoirs, Slow Motion (1998) and Devotion (2010). She is the author of five novels exploring the complexities of love and family relationships: Playing with Fire (1992), Fugitive Blue (1992), Picturing the Wreck (1997), Family History (2004), and Black and White (2008). Her shorter writing has also appeared in a number of outlets, including the New Yorker, Elle, Tin House, and others. Shapiro has taught creative writing at Wesleyan, the New School, NYU, and Columbia University. Her newest memoir, Hourglass: Time, Memory, Marriage, sees Shapiro handle the experience of marriage with the same thoughtful delicacy as in her previous memoirs.
