Adrienne Celt was born in Seattle, WA and has lived in a great many places since then. (A non-exhaustive list: Iowa, California, Chicago, and St. Petersburg, Russia.) Currently, she resides in Tucson, AZ where she welcomes the summer rainstorms as distractions from the fact that there is no ocean for hundreds of miles.
Her debut novel The Daughters (W.W. Norton/Liveright 2015) won the 2015 PEN Southwest Book Award and was named a Best Book of the Year by NPR. Her writing has also been recognized by the PEN/O. Henry Prize, a Glenna Luschei award, and residencies at Ragdale and the Willapa Bay AiR. She’s published fiction in Esquire, The Kenyon Review, Epoch,Prairie Schooner, and Ecotone, among other places, and her comics and essays can be found in The Rumpus, The Toast, The Millions, the Tin House Open Bar, and elsewhere. She publishes a webcomic (most) every Wednesday atloveamongthelampreys.com.
