Rick Moody, Novelist

New Yorker Rick Moody has authored four novels, three collections of short stories and a memoir. His first novel, Garden State (1992), which is about young people growing up in the industrial wasteland of northern New Jersey, received the Editor’s Choice Award from Pushcart Press. His second novel, The Ice Storm (1994), which relates the dissolution of two families in suburban Connecticut during the Thanksgiving weekend of 1973, was adapted into a feature film directed by Ang Lee. The Boston Globe has called Moody’s writing “sometimes swashbuckling, sometimes laserlike” and gone on to note that this writer can “spin out the absurdity of human behavior in giddy syntactic arabesques, or nail it with a single noun.”
