Some Favorite Writers: Evgenia Citkowitz

Written By Hannah Risser-Sperry | Dec 17, 2018

Hilton Als calls Evgenia Citkowitz’s first novel “a tour-de-force, a powerful, wicked, compassionate, and beautifully written account of the dangers we keep in our head and heart, including love.” The Shades is a haunting tale about a British family reeling in the aftermath of tragedy. Citkowitz’s debut novella and short story collection, Ether, was a New York Times Editors’ Choice. Citkowitz was born in New York, educated in London and the United States, and lives in Los Angeles.
