 Vivian Gornick Biography

Award-winning essayist and memoirist Vivian Gornick is a born and bred New Yorker who has written numerous best-selling books and has been working as a journalist for more than 40 years. She holds a BA from the City College of New York, and an MA from New York University. She first came to prominence in the 1970s, documenting feminism’s second wave for The Village Voice.

Her 1987 bestseller "Fierce Attachments," is credited with sparking the memoir craze, while her book "The Situation and the Story: The Art of Personal Narrative" (Farrar, Straus & Giroux: 2001) is a staple in most writing programs across the country.

Her most recent book, "Emma Goldman: Revolution As A Way of Life" (Yale University Press, 2011) is the story of the turn of the (20th) century radical who took seriously the idea that inner liberation is the first business of social revolution. Vivien’s lecture, “The Problem of Free Love: Emma Goldman, Anarchy, and the Liberated Self” was first given at USC to great acclaim and speaks saliently to our current political culture and the uprising of the Occupy Wall Street movement.

She has earned a variety of honors including two National Book Critics Circle Award nominations. In addition to political keynotes, Vivien is available to do workshops on The Persona in Nonfiction Writing, How to Write A Memoir, and What is a Personal Essay.
