LISTEN: Fiction Writer Catherine Browder Pays Homage To Chekhov

Catherine_Browder_edit_(Custom).jpg

Catherine Browder is an associate in the Creative Writing program at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and a member of the Dramatist Guild of America, whose one-act and full-length plays have been produced regionally and in New York City. She is the author of three fiction collections.

Browder is a fan of Anton Chekhov’s plays and short stories, and she imagined what might have happened to some of his characters after their final acts. Those stories make up her new book Now We Can All Go Home, Three Novels in Homage to Chekhov, which was published in November 2014.

All of our WORD readings, including bonus tracks by some poets, are archived on SoundCloud.
