Author of the Month: Nell Zink
Selected by the Bookshop
Our last Author of the Month in 2023 is Nell Zink
‘Nell Zink has a great backstory’, writes Christopher Tayler in the London Review of Books. ‘She’s the woman who came out of nowhere – or, on closer inspection, out of a busy background of Virginia boarding schools, bricklaying, postpunk fanzine production and hand-to-mouth endeavours in Israel and Germany – to publish, in her early fifties, a pair of novels that made her the talk of Brooklyn.’ Since then, she’s written three further novels, cementing her reputation as one of our funniest, sharpest satirists of contemporary life. Doxology, a family saga about a punk band in New York, is a great place to start.
