Meet the Writers
After graduating from Oberlin in 1993 with an English degree, Myla Goldberg spent a year in Prague writing and teaching English to former Communist ministers before settling in Brooklyn to pen her "honey of a first novel" (according to People magazine), the bestselling Bee Season. She followed that success with Wickett's Remedy. In our exclusive interview, Goldberg talks about how she abhors novels that seem to be "autobiography disguised as fiction." "For me, the whole point of being a fiction writer is to make things up!" she explains.
