American author. Burroway’s published oeuvre includes eight novels, memoirs, short stories, poems, translations, plays, two children’s books, and two how-to books about the craft of writing. Her novel 'The Buzzards' was nominated for the 1970 Pulitzer Prize, and 'Raw Silk,' her most acclaimed novel thus far, was runner up for the 1977 National Book Award. While Burroway’s literary fame is due to her novels, the book that has won her the widest readership is 'Writing Fiction: A Guide to Narrative Craft,' first published in 1982 and now in its 9th edition.
