Tina May Hall lives in upstate New York where she teaches creative writing and literature at Hamilton College. Her collection of stories, The Physics of Imaginary Objects, won the 2010 Drue Heinz Literature Prize. She was the recipient of an NEA fellowship in 2014 and has done residencies at Yaddo and Vermont Studio Center. Her stories have appeared in SmokeLong Quarterly, The Collagist, Quarterly West, Black Warrior Review, Wigleaf, and other journals. Her novel, The Snow Collectors, was published by Dzanc Books in February 2020.
Reviewers have called it ‘gorgeously written’, a ‘wonder of a book’. It’s ‘lovely’, ‘lush’, ‘intoxicating’, ‘atmospheric’, ‘lyrical’, ‘clever’, ‘every sentence exquisite’ with ‘a magnificent heroine’. The Chicago Review of Books notes “Tina May Hall writes with the confidence of a prosaist who knows her novel is damn fun”.
