Elizabeth Hand Interview Live!

Cross-over appeal?  P-shaw.   The novels and career of Elizabeth Hand are genre-bending.  Not many writers can say they write books for teens and adults that are equally successful, regularly receiving starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, Booklist, and Kirkus.  Her vast bibliography includes thrillers, mysteries, fantasy, poetry, and historical drama.  AND she is the recipient of numerous accolades: The Shirley Jackson Award,  two Nebula Awards, three World Fantasy Awards, and many more.

Her novels for adults include “Generation Loss” and “Available Dark,” but it was her YA novel “Illyria” that really captured our attention, with its relentless plot that weaves together forbidden love, Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” and many other threads in an amazingly fast 144 pages.  More recently there was “Radiant Days“–with its time-traveling poet (French nineteenth century Rimbaud) and visual artist artist (1970’s art student Merle), it should put you in just the right mood for National Poetry Month.
