Lynne Tillman

May 2004

Lynne Tillman is a cool lady and a very interesting and smart writer. She seems to be really on top of the fiction scene right now, and has excellent taste overall; she's a good person to hit up for advice / cultural recommendations. To the extent that any creative writing class can be helpful, this one was - although I sometimes wished she would have been more precise and stringent with her criticisms. Still, I would recommend her as a professor, and I would also recommend her books.
