Robin Black’s new novel, Life Drawing, is forthcoming from Random House in 2014. It has been called “a magnificent literary achievement,” by Karen Russell, and “a riveting story about the corrosive effects of betrayal,” by Alice Sebold. Her story collection, If I Loved You, I Would Tell You This, was published by Random House in 2010 to international acclaim by publications such as O. Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, San Francisco Chronicle, The Irish Times, and more. Robin lives in the Philadelphia area with her family.
Robin Black speaks with friend and fellow Beyond the Margins contributor Nichole Bernier about her debut novel, The Unfinished Work of Elizabeth D., as well as about coming to a first book with a journalism rather than creative writing background, how facts and truth fit into fiction, and The Mommy Question.
