Since the mid 1970s, Theresa Kishkan has published three collections of poetry, several chapbooks, a memoir, two collections of essays, three novels and two novellas. She has gathered up an impressive number of award nominations and literary prizes along the way. Her latest book is Patrin, a novella about a young woman who travels to Czechoslovakia to trace her Roma history.
Longer than a short story and shorter than a novel, the novella is an underused and underappreciated literary form. With an eye to changing that, Kishkan has formed a publishing company to showcase the novella. Her own upcoming novella, Winter Wren, will be the first to bear the new imprint.
