About this year’s featured author:

Peter Mountford’s debut novel, A Young Man’s Guide to Late Capitalism (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), won the 2012 Washington State Book Award in fiction and was a finalist in the 2012 VCU Cabell First Novelist Prize. His second novel, The Dismal Science (2014, Tin House Books) was named a New York Times Editor’s Choice. Since graduating from the University of Washington’s MFA program in 2006, Peter’s work has appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times Magazine, Granta, Best New American Voices 2008, Conjunctions, Salon, Southern Review, Slate, and Boston Review, where he won second place in the 2007 contest judged by George Saunders. He’s currently the events curator at Hugo House, Seattle’s writing center, where he also teaches.

According to The Seattle Times:, “Debut novels don’t come much savvier, punchier, or more entertaining…the work of an extraordinary talent.” 

The New York Times Book Review stated, “Peter Mountford’s fierce imagination and intelligence drive The Dismal Science. D’Orsi is a mesmerizing character. His wrecking-ball choices and the truth that there are no easy answers make him utterly human.”
