Michael Cunningham launched his career by publishing short stories in ”The Atlantic Monthly” and ”Paris Review”. His debut was an impressive feat for a student still in the midst of his MFA program at Iowa’s Creative Writing Workshop. Cunningham’s early successes were telling omens of what lay ahead — six novels, a Pulitzer Prize, a film adaptation of his novel ”The Hours” starring Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, and Julianne Moore, as well as many awards and fellowships. Novelist and former journalist Amy Stolls interviews Cunningham to get the stories behind his path to literary success. Expect an engaging discussion of literature and the writing life.
