Rachel DeWoskin’s third novel to be released March 29

Rachel Dewoskin’s newest novel, Big Girl Small (FSG 2011), comes out on March 29. A 2000 graduate of BU’s poetry MFA program, Rachel is the author of the novels Repeat After Me and Foreign Babes in Beijing. Here’s a sample of some of the praise she’s been getting:

“DeWoskin’s daring third book takes on sexual politics, physical beauty, pity, and violence, and succeeds in giving readers a nuanced and provocative treatment without descending into pedantics or hysteria.” –Publisher’s Weekly, starred review


“Hiding out in a seedy motel room on the outskirts of Ypsilanti, Michigan, 3-foot-9-inch Judy Lohden narrates, in an “epic dwarf download,” what transpired when she transferred to a performing-arts high school her junior year. DeWoskin deftly captures the often vicious dynamics of adolescents, which mask their fragility, and creates in Judy an unforgettable character, one who is, by turns, sardonic and heartbreakingly vulnerable.” – Booklist, starred review

Rachel is also an actress, and has a beautiful website, which you can visit to learn more about her work at www.racheldewoskin.com
