Karen Russell is a novelist and short-story writer and was one of The New Yorker's “20 Under 40” in 2010.

Praised by Carl Hiaasen as “both shimmering and stark,” Russell's first novel was subsequently adapted into a series on HBO.

A recipient of a 2013 MacArthur Foundation “Genius Grant,” Russell is also the author of the story collection St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves as well as the recent Vampires in the Lemon Grove. Russell's stories, one of which she described as “Hitchcock meets the swamp,” have appeared in Granta , The Best American Short Stories, and The New Yorker.

Porochista Khakpour was born in Tehran, raised in Los Angeles and lives in New York City. Khakpour is the author of the novels The Last Illusion and Sons and Other Flammable Objects—the 2007 California Book Award winner in First Fiction and a New York Times Editor's Choice. Her writing has appeared in or is forthcoming in Harper's, The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The Wall Street Journal, Salon and many other publications.
