About the author: 

*Noy Holland* is the author of two collections of short fiction, /What 
Begins with Bird/ (FC2), and /The Spectacle of the Body/ (Knopf), and 
the recipient of fellowships from the NEA and the Massachusetts Cultural 
Council.  Her stories have appeared in /The Quarterly, Conjunctions, 
Black Warrior Review, Ploughshares, Open City, NOON,/ and others.  She 
is a Professor in the MFA program for Writers and Poets at the 
University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where she co-directs the Juniper 
Initiative.   
 

Praise for Noy's most recent book, / What Begins with Bird/: 

"From broken phrase to sentence, from sentence to paragraph, from 
paragraph to scene and scene to story, Noy Holland's aims are ambitious, 
her tone right, her diction masterful, and she spells her stories out in 
bites of beautifully lyrical but bitter prose and with an ardent 
grimness of eye that is both unsettling and intensely satisfying. /What 
Begins with Bird/ is a remarkable achievement." ¡V WILLIAM GASS 

"A ravishing associative logic of recurrent objects and sounds 
distinguishes Noy Holland's original stories; the bird in the book's 
title is the writer, herself, surely a poet, singing of 'The slickened 
births and murders, ours, the fierce wide blowing day.' Old wisdom newly 
and grandly delivered." ¡V CHRISTINE SCHUTT
