Notă biografică

Dana Johnson is an associate professor of English in the Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences at the University of Southern California. She is the author of Elsewhere, California: A Novel .


"Deftly achieves both art and amusement. Johnson's ability to coax the heart as much as the mind ... marks the author as a storyteller at her most potent."
"An exciting and gorgeous literary debut."
"You can hear Johnson's voices ringing long after you put the stories down: No character could stay a stranger long in this writer's hands."
"The stories in "Break Any Woman Down" are sexy, beautiful, and electric. Dana Johnson inhabits her characters' lives with sympathy and grace, giving voice to a chorus of non-Hollywood Los Angelenos. Through their stories, these characters reveal their hearts to us and . . . we see our own. This is an exciting and gorgeous literary debut."--Jonathan Ames, author of "The Extra Man"
"A wonderful collection of vivid tales told in fresh voices, "Break Any Woman Down" showcases Dana Johnson's gift to render with authenticity a range of ages, nationalities, and perspectives with a verve that leaves the reader wanting more."--Janet McDonald, author of "Project Girl"
"You can hear Johnson's voices ringing long after you put the stories down; you feel purged and rested and in the company of good friends, not strangers. No character could stay a stranger long in this writer's hands."--"Los Angeles Times Book Review"
"The nine stories collected here deservedly won the Flannery O'Connor Award for Short Fiction. In each, Johnson explores the interactions among men and women, women and women, parents and children, whites and blacks, young and old, and the living and the dying most vainly searching for a place to be, physically and/or emotionally. . . . The stories are full of the small details and disappointments of life, the missed opportunities and the inopportune moments that change one's trajectory. . . . This collection challenges the emotions and requires contemplation."--"Library Journal"
"A subtle and sometimes compelling vision of Los Angeleno life."--"Kirkus Reviews"
