About Author: Elisabeth Piedmont-Marton

Elisabeth Piedmont-Marton actually gets paid to read books and talk about them with bright young people in her job as an associate professor of English at Southwestern University, just outside of Austin in beautiful Georgetown, Texas. She's lived in Texas for 25 years, but before that spent the first half of her childhood in southwest Virginia, the second half in New Jersey, and college and the first bout with graduate school in Ohio and Chicago. She has written for the Texas Observer and has published work in scholarly journals and collections. Her recent work focuses on the the literature of post-Viet Nam American wars, and her current project is a manuscript about life in a small town in the far north of Viet Nam. Other interests include food, sports, travel, and listening to other really smart people talk about politics.
