American author, poet and essayist, Mary Karr is Peck Professor of English Literature at Syracuse University, New York State. Her critically acclaimed bestseller The Liars’ Club, a bitter chronicle of her Texan childhood in the sixties, written in an essential style marked by vicious irony, was published in 1995. The book, PEN/Martha Albrand Award winner and National Book Critics Circle Awards finalist, remained in the “New York Times” bestseller list for over a year. It was followed by Cherry (2001), Lit (2009), which closed her memoir trilogy, The Art of Memoir (2015) and her latest work Now Go Out There (and Get Curious), 2016, based on her commencement address at Syracuse University in 2015. Karr has also published four volumes of poetry: Abacus (1986), The Devil’s Tour (1993), Viper Rum (1998) and Sinners Welcome (2006). Her works have appeared on “Poetry”, “The New Yorker” and “The Atlantic Monthly”. Her other awards include the Whiting Writer's Award (1989), the Pushcart Prize for both her poetry and essays (1995) and the Guggenheim Fellowship (2005).
