The Adventures of Jane Smiley
“The author of ten books of fiction, and of many nonfiction essays for U.S. News & World Report, The New York Times, and other publications, Smiley taught for fifteen years at Iowa State University, leaving in 1996 to live and write full-time in northern California. A passionate horseback rider, her next book will be set in the sometimes-seedy world of horse racing. Smiley spoke recently with Atlantic Unbound’s Katie Bacon.”

Take a wild ride with Jane Smiley’s spirited new heroine
“Jane Smiley doesn’t do autobiography. You won’t find her in Ginny, the narrator of her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, A Thousand Acres, or in any of the ensemble cast of her wicked academic satire, Moo. “I don’t write to investigate my own life or sensibility,” says the tall, elegant author. “I write more to investigate the world.”
