Thalia Field was born in Chicago in 1966. After attending high school in France, she graduated with honors from Brown University, where she was awarded the first John Hawkes prize in fiction. She was a senior editor of Conjunctions from 1996 to 1999, and guest-edited a special issue on experimental music-theater, including work by Harry Partch, Meredith Monk, and Robert Ashley. She is the author of Point and Line and Incarnate (New Directions); her forthcoming novel, Clown Shrapnel, is due from Coffee House next spring, with a “silent film” by Bill Morrison. Thalia’s recent multimedia dance collaborations with Jamie Jewett have been performed at Danspace at St Mark’s Church, New York City, and Green Street Studios, Cambridge. Thalia is on the Literary Arts faculty at Brown University and frequently teaches in the Summer Writing Program at Naropa University.
