Author/Artist Bio

Ethan Canin is the author of six books of fiction, including the story collections Emperor of the Air, and The Palace Thief, and the novel Carry Me Across the Water. He has been called by the New Yorker one of “twenty writers for the new millennium.” Canin’s widely anthologized short stories have appeared in the New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, Esquire, The Paris Review, and many other magazines, and have also been the basis for several Hollywood movies. A graduate of Harvard Medical School and a licensed physician, Canin gave up medicine a decade ago to become a professor at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, in Iowa City, Iowa.
