Andrew Sean Greer's Biography
Andrew Sean Greer Speaker:
Andrew Sean Greer is an American novelist and short-story writer. The New York Times called his 2008 novel The Story of a Marriage “lyrical” and “inspired.” His first novel, 2001’s The Path of Minor Planets, was well received, and his second, 2004’s The Confessions of Max Tivoli, earned him comparisons to Proust and Nabokov from critic John Updike. His stories have appeared in Esquire, The Paris Review, The New Yorker, and other national publications. Greer has taught at a number of universities, including the Iowa Writers Workshop, been a TODAY show pick, a New York Public Library Cullman Center Fellow, a judge for the National Book Award, and a winner of the California Book Award and the New York Public Library Young Lions Award. Born in Washington, D.C., Greer received his bachelor’s degree from Brown University and his master’s degree from the University of Montana.
In August 2016, Greer joined the Santa Maddalena Foundation as its Executive Director, working alongside president Beatrice Monti della Corte to invite writers from around the world for six weeks of tranquility in the Tuscan countryside in which to pursue their craft.
He currently resides in San Francisco.
