Meredeth Maran

Meredith Maran published her first poem in Highlights For Kids at age 6, her first national magazine article at age 15, and her first book at age 18. In the years that followed she built a house and raised goats outside Taos, lived with the cast of "Hair" in London, and installed brakes and union consciousness on the Ford assembly line in San Jose. 

 Meredith is an award-winning journalist, book critic for People, The Boston Globe, The SF Chronicle, and Salon, and a member of The National Book Critics Circle. She's the author of ten nonfiction books, including My Lie, a deeply personal and courageously confessional account of her own heartbreaking experience with the phenomenon of false-memory recovery. Her first novel, A Theory of Small Earthquakes, has received the kinds of praise from the kinds of writers that not only ensures a second novel published, but a second novel with a back jacket full of incredible blurbs. The mother of two grown sons and a brand new grandson, Meredith lives in Oakland with her wife and is, according to our frequent and lengthy Twitter exchanges, part of a passionate minority of women deeply committed to embracing their naturally curly Jewfros.
