Iowa Writers' Workshop

Lately I've become somewhat obsessed with the Iowa Writers' Workshop. It all started with my reading of Kim Edwards The Memory Keeper's Daughter. I found a great article on the workshop at Wikipedia that includes a list of notable graduates. I'm now completely absorded by Jennifer Haigh's Mrs. Kimble, for which she won the PEN/Hemingway Award.

In Mrs. Kimble, readers discover the not very likable Ken Kimble through the three very different women he married. It is tragic and beautifully written. Highly recommended!
