Mary Morris

 

Mary Morris has been a writer and a wanderer for as long as she can remember.  Her journeys in the world have taken her to through Central America, across Siberia and down the Mississippi.  Her journeys of the spirit have taken her deeper. In her numerous books, including six novels, three story collections, and four travel memoirs Morris explores the inner and outer landscapes in which we find ourselves.  Her stories have been published in such places as Narrative, The Paris Review, and Ploughshares, and her books have been translated into many languages. A recipient of the Rome Prize in Literature Morris teaches creative writing at Sarah Lawrence College.
