THE ART OF DISAPPEARING

In keeping with my previous efforts to bring accomplished Bennies to Metuchen (Pultizer Prize finalist David Gates, South African author Sheila Kohler, travel writer Rolf Potts), I've invited Ivy Pochoda to read at The Rac. Bennington is a place where the students are almost as accomplished as the faculty, and Ivy, like Rolf, is a fellow MFA candidate. She was in my workshop during the June residency and we were teammates during a softball game played on the Commons Lawn (Prose vs. Poetry).

 

Here's the intro paragraph from her recent Vanity Fair interview: "Ivy Pochoda is the best squash player in history to ever to pen a novel. Pochoda, a sharpshooting southpaw, grew up at the Heights Casino in Brooklyn, played No. 1 at Harvard for three years (where she majored in classical Greek and English), and won the national intercollegiate title her senior year. After college, she was based in Amsterdam and played on the international pro tour, reaching a world ranking of 38. For many years she was one of the top U.S. players, coming in third at the nationals in 2007. Last month, St. Martin's Press published her debut novel, THE ART OF DISAPPEARING. Following a magician and his muse in Las Vegas and Amsterdam, it brillantly blurs the line between reality and the imagination." ART, which has been compared to The Time Traveler's Wife, has been called "wonderful and wonder-filled," by The New York Daily News, "Terrific!," by Elle Magazine, and "Wistful," by The New York Post. Author Peter Hedges (What's Eating Gilbert Grape) said, "It's a magical story, full of passion, heartbreak, and wonder." FREE! Books on sale at event. To read Ivy's VF interview, click HERE.
