I’m so excited to share that my essay collection, Glass, Light, Electricity has been selected by Elena Passarello as the winner of the 2019 Permafrost Prize in Nonfiction and will be published by the University of Alaska Press this February!
Fleet-footed and capricious, the essays in Glass, Light & Electricity wander through landscapes both familiar and unfamiliar, finding them equal parts magical and toxic. They explore and merge public and private history through lyric meditations that use research, association, and metaphor to examine subjects as diverse as neon signs, scalping, heartbreak, and seizures. The winner of the 2019 Permafrost Prize in nonfiction, Shena McAuliffe expands the creative possibilities of form.
