On Tuesday, March 19, prize-winning author Suzanne Berne will be at the South End library to read from her latest suspense novel, The Dogs of Littlefield. The New York Times reviewer wrote that “..nothing sucks a reader in like psychological menace, and Berne is a master of the craft.” The Boston Globe said it was a “..near-flawless satire of middle-class America…”
Berke, who is the fiction editor of The Harvard Review, teaches creative writing at Boston College and the Ranier Writing Workshop. She won the U.K.’s Orange Award for A Crime in the Neighborhood. Earlier novels are The Ghost at the Table and A Perfect Arrangement. Her short fiction and essays have appeared in magazines including Ploughshares, Agni, The Threepenny Review, Mademoiselle, Vogue, The New York Times Magazine, The Guardian, and The Quarterly.
