We are delighted to learn that Patricia Engel has signed a two-book deal with New York-based publishing house Grove/Atlantic. The winner of our 2009 Marianne Russo Scholarship, Engel tells us to look for Vida, her debut collection of short stories, in the Fall of 2010. A novel, as yet untitled, will follow. You can read Engel’s work online in Guernica, Slice, and Boston Review (here and here). Vida‘s title story, about a Colombian girl who is trafficked into prostitution in Miami, is in print in Harpur Palate 8.1. Check Littoral again soon for an audio recording of Engel’s reading from our 28th Seminar this past January.

Congratulations, Patricia!
