Sarah Perry

When Sarah Perry was twelve, her mother was murdered in their Maine home by an unknown assassin. Her mother’s death was a defining event in Perry’s life; she grew to adulthood without her mother, waited twelve years for the murderer to be caught, and spent years after delving deeper into the person her mother had been. In her harrowing debut memoir, After the Eclipse: A Mother's Murder, a Daughter's Search, she recounts these experiences. Perry’s works have been published in Bluestocking Literary Journal and Blood & Thunder magazine. She is a graduate of the MFA program at Columbia University and served as publisher of Columbia: A Journal of Literature and Art. She has received the Javits Fellowship and the Writers’ Fellowship from the Edward F. Albee Foundation. She has also held residencies at PLAYA in Oregon and Art Farm in Nebraska.
