We’re pleased to announce that Jessica Lott (Fiction 2004)’s novel THE REST OF US will be published by Simon & Schuster in the summer 2013.
Jessica won the Florence Engel Randall Graduate Fiction Award at Boston University and has an MA in English Literature from Washington University in St. Louis (2002). Her first book, the novella Osin (that she wrote for Ha Jin’s novella class at BU) won the Low Fidelity Press Novella Award, judged by Aimee Bender, and was published in 2007.
Jessica began writing THE REST OF US the fall after graduating, and it took her about 6 years to write. She also writes about art and has an upcoming monthly column for the PBS-affiliate Art 21 (starting this month). She co-runs the fiction performance series in NYC, Liars’ League NYC.
