‘Literary awards pile up for Brookline writer’

April 10th, 2012 by 

Leah Hager Cohen, critically acclaimed author and the Jenks Chair of Contemporary American Letters at the College of the Holy Cross, profiles author Edith Pearlman, on the cover of the Boston Globe’s “g” section. 

“Despite publishing over 250 short stories and four prize-winning collections over the past 40 years, Pearlman has long eluded the attention of all but a modest, ardent cadre of readers,” writes Cohen.  “That changed when her fourth book, ‘Binocular Vision,’ was lauded last year on the cover of The New York Times Book Review. It went on to garner more splendid reviews along with a bouquet of awards (National Book Critics Circle, PEN/Malamud, and Edward Lewis Wallant), prestigious nominations (National Book Award, Story Prize, and Los Angeles Times Book Prize) and, perhaps most gratifying, a wider audience.”
