Harrison Solow

It was a treat to interview Pushcart Prize-winning author Harrison Solow. She is the author of Felicity and Barbara Pym, which is about to be launched in London, and then in the entire U.K. in late July. Her eclectic life includes stints as a Franciscan nun and the editor of a Jewish Hassidic Magazine. She’s written for everyone from celebrities and astronauts to Canadian prime ministers and NASA. Harrison has also lived a Hollywood life with her husband Herbert Solow, the former head of MGM, Paramount and Desilu Studios. A lover of all things Welsh, Harrison accepted a lectureship in the English Department of the University of Wales in 2004 and was appointed Writer in Residence in 2008. She was also invited to lecture at Harvard and Cambridge.
