Kim Adrian's essays and short stories have appeared in O Magazine, Tin House, Agni, and The Gettysburg Review, among others. Her first book, Sock, is part of Bloomsbury’s Object Lessons series. Her writing has garnered several awards and recognitions including a Bread Loaf Writers Conference scholarship, a PEN New England Discovery Award, a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist’s Grant, and a fellowship to the Edward Albee Barn. Kim is the editor of The Shell Game: Writers Play with Borrowed Forms, an anthology of lyric essays that a review in The Millions praised as providing “a sense of hope about literature and its capacity for evolution and change.” A graduate of Barnard College with a major in Cultural Anthropology, Kim received her MFA from the Bennington Writing Seminars. Her memoir, The Twenty-Seventh Letter of the Alphabet (a Next Generation Indie Book Awards finalist) is part of the American Lives series, published by  University of Nebraska Press and edited by Tobias Wolff. Kim has taught at Brown and Boston Universities. Her third book, Dear Knausgaard, will be published in May 2020 by Fiction Advocate as part of their Afterwords series ("reinventing literary criticism"). She is currently at work on a novel based on the life and writings of E.T.A. Hoffmann.
