Mary Caponegro is the author of the short story collections Tales from the Next Village, The Star Cafe, Five Doubts, and The Complexities of Intimacy. She is the Richard B. Fisher Family Professor of Writing and Literature at Bard College.  William Gass said of her work, “The music of Mary Caponegro’s stories is to the mouth what wine is. Readers will find themselves lost among answers, intoxicated, knowing only that these are stories unlike any others before or since, which is, for this reader at least, a relief, a challenge, and a godsend.”
