James Hannaham, writer. Of what? Well, his stories have appeared in The Literary Review, Open City and Nerve, Significant Objects, and One Story. He has received fellowships from The MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, The Blue Mountain Center, Chateau de Lavigny, and Fundacion Valparaiso. He teaches creative writing at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and lives near there. His first novel, God Says No, came out through McSweeney’s Books in late May of 2009. An excerpt from the book appears in McSweeney’s 31, which looks a lot like a yearbook, binding-wise.
