Jessica Keener

Jessica Keener’s debut novel, Night Swim (2012), became a national bestseller; The Boston Globe called it “thrilling” and “exhilarating,” The New York Times “earnest” and “moving.” She followed it in 2013 with Women In Bed, a collection of nine stories; Publisher’s Weekly wrote, “She demonstrates a versatile voice and ability to deliver as much exquisite detail as the stories’ brevity will allow.” Her fiction has been listed in The Pushcart Prize under “Outstanding Writers.” She is also a recipient of Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Fellowship. Her second novel, Strangers in Budapest, is forthcoming from Algonquin Books. Keener is a manuscript consultant at Grub Street and has been part of AGNI’s editorial team since 2004. (updated 4/2014)
