Daphne Gottlieb

Daphne Gottlieb stitches together the ivory tower and the gutter just using her tongue. She is the award-winning author of 10 books including “Pretty Much Dead,” short stories about the people hanging on to the edge of the world in San Francisco. Previous works include “Dear Dawn: Aileen Wuornos in her Own Words,” letters from Death Row by the “first female serial killer”. She has won awards including the Acker, the Firecracker, and the Publishing Triangle, and recently finished her first novel, which is sort of about anonymous sex.
