No Tell Books

Laurel Snyder



Laurel Snyder is a dilletent. In addition to writing books that have nothing in common with one another–Daphne & Jim (Burnside Review Press, 2006), Half/Life (Soft Skull Press, 2006), Inside the Slidy Diner (Tricycle Press, 2007), and Up and Down the Scratchy Mountains (Random House, 2008)–she plays the guitar badly, cooks fairly well, and spends too much time online. She holds an MFA from the Iowa Writers' Workshop, and hopes to someday pack up her little family and move home to Baltimore, the city that reads.
