Claire Dederer is a memoirist, essayist, critic, and longtime contributor to The New York Times. “Dederer’s mind is a wonder, her erudition, too,” writes Nick Hornby, with her incisive, witty voice captured in the critically acclaimed books Love and Trouble: A Midlife Reckoning, Poser: My Life in Twenty-three Yoga Poses, and Monsters: A Fan’s Dilemma. A passionate, provocative, blisteringly smart interrogation of how we make and experience art in the age of #MeToo, Monsters expands on her instantly viral Paris Review essay, “What Do We Do with the Art of Monstrous Men?” Dederer currently teaches at the Pacific University low-residency MFA program.
