Dale Peck Fiction Reading
Dale Peck published his first novel, Martin and John, which the New York Times called “a brilliant debut,” in 1993. Two more novels followed: The Law of Enclosures, which was adapted into a feature film by John Greyson starring Sarah Polley and Diane Ladd, and Now It’s Time to Say Goodbye. Other books include a memoir-cum-novel, What We Lost, which was overshadowed by the attention bestowed on his book of literary criticism, Hatchet Jobs, and its most notorious review, that of Rick Moody’s The Black Veil. Peck has published two novels for children, Drift House and The Lost Cities, one young adult novel, Sprout, and a literary thriller, Body Surfing. Peck lives in New York City with his boyfriend, where he teaches in the Graduate Writing Program of the New School. Co-sponsored by the Lesbian-Gay-Queer Research Initiative.
