Lorrie Moore

Via a Bookslut link to a new interview with Lorrie Moore, I learned she'd been named 2005 winner of the PEN/Malamud Award for short fiction. How'd I miss that bit of news? It evidently happened last month midway between S.'s foot surgery and R.'s departure for Germany. Ah well: distractions.

Searching for more on Moore today, I found this 1998 Q&A, a 1998 profile in Ploughshares, and a Cup of Chicha '04 transcript of a Q&A between Moore and 40 MFA students--scroll down for a look at the Lorrie Moore T-shirts. I would wear one of those.
