Karen Green

Karen Green is an artist and writer whose Bough Down (Siglio, 2013) has been called "the most moving, strange, original, harrowing, and beautiful document of grief and reckoning I’ve read," by Maggie Nelson in the Los Angeles Review of Books and "a profound, lovely, bitterly funny book that fulfills the first requirement of great art: it is magical" by George Saunders. Her work has also been published in Open City and anthologized in Bound to Last: 30 Writers on Their Most Cherished Book. Her visual work is collected by individuals as well as institutions including the Yale Beinecke Library and the Whitney Museum of American Art special collections. She exhibits with the Space gallery in Los Angeles and the Calabi gallery in Northern California.
