Author: Diana Hamilton

Diana Hamilton writes about crying, shitting, consenting, kissing, dreaming, fainting, writing, and reading. Specifically, she's published a few books on these subjects: God Was Right (forthcoming from Ugly Duckling Presse), a collect of poem-essays about cats' deaths, friendship, love, and Jane Austen; THE AWFUL TRUTH (Golias Books), an annotated bibliography of dreams and a novella about anxiety; OKAY, OKAY (Truck Books), a book of poetry (mostly) about women crying at work; and Shit Advice Columnist, which is pretty self-explanatory. She's also published some chapbooks, including Universe (Ugly Duckling) and Some Shit Advice (The Physiocrats). You can walk through audio recordings of her dreams in Alejandro Miguel Justino Crawford's videogame, Diana Hamilton's Dreams (Gauss PDF), which is a sister project to THE AWFUL TRUTH. She holds a PhD in Comparative Literature from Cornell University, where she wrote about "style." She teaches writing in New York. She is from Indiana.
