Rivka Galchen’s first novel, Atmospheric Disturbances, was the winner of the William Saroyan International Prize for Writing and a finalist for Canada’s highest literary honor, the Governor General’s Award. Writing in The New Yorker,the critic James Wood called it “an original novel, one that knows how to move from the comic to the painful.” Galchen is the recipient of a Rona Jaffe Foundation Award, and was named among the “20 Under 40” fiction writers to watch by The New Yorker, to which she is a frequent contributor. Galchen’s second book, the short story collection American Innovations, was published this spring. She teaches at Columbia University.
