“Fluid, cracked, mordant, colloquial” (The New York Times Book Review), Lorrie Moore’s acclaimed fiction includes the short-story collections Self-Help, Bark, and Birds of America; and the novels Anagrams, Who Will Run the Frog Hospital?, and A Gate at the Stairs. The Gertrude Conaway Professor of English at Vanderbilt University, she is the recipient of the Irish Times Prize for Literature, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the PEN/Malamud Award. From early-career novel reviews and criticism, to writings on the unequal state of race in America, to commentary on the shifting landscapes of some of television’s most popular shows, See What Can Be Done showcases more than three decades of Moore’s diverse work.
