 Meg Wolitzer Biography

Meg Wolitzer is a bestselling author and instructor in the MFA program at Stony Brook Southhampton.

Wolitzer was born in Brooklyn, New York and raised Jewish. Wolitzer studied creative writing at Smith College and graduated from Brown University in 1981. She wrote her first novel, Sleepwalking, a story of three college girls obsessed with poetry and death, while still an undergraduate; it was published in 1982. Her following books include Hidden Pictures, This Is Your Life, Surrender, Dorothy, The Wife, The Position, The Ten-Year Nap, The Uncoupling, and The Interestings. Her short story Tea at the House was featured in 1998's Best American Short Stories collection. Her novel for younger readers, The Fingertips of Duncan Dorfman, was published in 2011.

She also co-authored, with Jesse Green, a book of cryptic crosswords: Nutcrackers: Devilishly Addictive Mind Twisters for the Insatiably Verbivorous, and has written about the relative difficulty women writers face in gaining critical acclaim.

Her most recent novel, The Female Persuasion, was released in April 2018.

She has taught creative writing at the University of Iowa's Writers' Workshop, Skidmore College, and, most recently, was a guest artist at Princeton University. Over the past decade, she has also taught at both Stony Brook Southampton's MFA in Creative Writing program and the Southampton Writers Conference and the Florence Writers Workshop.

Three films have been based on her work; This Is My Life, scripted and directed by Nora Ephron, the 2006 made-for-television movie, Surrender, Dorothy, and the 2017 drama The Wife, starring Glenn Close.
