Karen Russell Wins MacArthur Genius Grant

Novelist and short story writer Karen Russell has won a $625,000 MacArthur Foundation Genius Grant. We first encountered her in Swamplandia. She followed with St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves and then the story collection Vampires in the Lemon Grove. Not bad for a woman who lives from Tupperware tubs. Read about he recent grants here: http://mobile.nytimes.com/2013/09/25/arts/macarthur-genius-award-winners-named.html. And a great interview with Ms. Russell here.
