Edith Konecky began her writing career while still in high school, winning a short story contest for which she was paid a penny a word. She enrolled at New York University when she was seventeen, married when she was twenty-one, lived a suburban life for twenty years, writing occasional short stories. At the age of thirty-seven, she returned to college, this time to Columbia. She began to publish her stories, writing many of them at Yaddo, where she won fellowships from 1964 through 1969. Her books include Allegra Maud Goldman, A Place at the Table, Past Sorrows & Coming Attractions, A View to the North, and Fiction and the Facts of Life.
