Jacob Paul


Jacob Paul’s 2010 debut novel, Sarah/Sara, was called one of that year’s five best first fictions by Poets & Writers. His second novel, A Song of Ilan, is forthcoming from Jaded Ibis Press in the spring of 2015. His work has also appeared, or is forthcoming, in Hunger Mountain, Western Humanities Review, Green Mountains Review, Massachusetts Review, Seneca Review, Mountain Gazette, and USA Today’s Weekend Magazine, as well as on The Rumpus and Numero Cinq. His scholarly interests focus on comparative postmodernisms and what might come after them. He holds a BA in Literature from SUNY Buffalo, an MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and a PhD in Literature and Creative Writing from The University of Utah. He teaches English and Creative Writing at High Point University in North Carolina. Read Aaron J. Cance’s FWR interview with Jacob Paul, following the publication of Sarah/Sara.
