Called "disturbing, edgy and provocative" by Book Magazine, Terese Svoboda’s work is often the surreal poetry of a nightmare yet is written with such wit, verve and passion that she can address the direst subject. A "fabulous fabulist" according to Publisher’s Weekly, Vogue lauded her first novel, Cannibal, as a female “Heart of Darkness.” "Astounding!" wrote the New York Post about her memoir Black Glasses Like Clark Kent. Her fifth novel, Pirate Talk or Mermalade (2010), is “a strange and nastily beautiful book,”--The Millions. “She will, of course, compared to Willa Cather -- and deservedly so,” wrote Kurt Andersen about her new Bohemian Girl. Svoboda has taught at Columbia’s School of the Arts, Bennington, New School, Sarah Lawrence, Williams and elsewhere.
