Kate Zambreno


Kate Zambreno is the author of the novels O Fallen Angel and Green Girl, as well as the prose work Heroines. She has received accolades from literary giants and indie publications alike. For example, Elissa Schapell of Vanity Fair wrote: "I can't recall the last time I read a book whose heroine infuriated and seduced me as completely as Kate Zambreno's Green Girl." And the editorial team at Jezebel added Zambreno to its 2012 iteration of "The Jezebel 25: Kick-Ass and Amazing Women We Love."

We invited Zambreno to write an essay for the monograph accompanying our 2014–15 exhibition of photographer Anne Collier’s work, and we were thrilled by the thoughtful essay she penned about the exhibition.

Zambreno teaches writing at Columbia University and Sarah Lawrence College.
