Jean Hanff Korelitz is the author of the novels You Should Have Known, Admission, The White Rose, The Sabbathday River and A Jury of Her Peers. Her sixth novel, The Devil and Webster, will be published in March, 2017.
She has also written a novel for children, Interference Powder, and a collection of poetry, The Properties of Breath. From November 2016 – January 2017, her immersive adaptation (with Paul Muldoon) of James Joyce’s “The Dead”, THE DEAD, 1904, was produced by Dot Dot Productions, LLC, for the Irish Repertory Theatre at the American Irish Historical Society. For more on the production, see our website.
Born and raised in New York City and educated at Dartmouth College and Clare College, Cambridge, Korelitz lives in New York City with her husband, Irish poet Paul Muldoon, and their children. She is the founder of BOOKTHEWRITER, a New York City based service that connects authors and book groups.
“Korelitz’s new novel is a smart, semi-satire about the reign of identity politics on college campuses today…The Devil and Webster is wittily on target about, among other things, social class and privilege, silencing and old-school feminist ambivalence about power.” - Maureen Corrigan, NPR

“On the eve of what would be Sylvia Plath’s 85th birthday, we are sharing a stunning poem by J. Hope Stein, who perfectly captures Sylvia’s internal battle between life as mother, lover, and poet and the torture of being resigned to the status of great man’s wife, despite the passion they shared.” Lena Dunham
