Kantika is due out in Winter 2023 from Metropolitan Books/Henry Holt & Company. Elizabeth’s fourth novel, The End of the Point, was long-listed for the 2013 National Book Award in Fiction  and selected as a New York Times Notable Book of the Year.  Her other novels  are Awake, The Honey Thief, and Unravelling. Her story collection, Have You Seen Me?, won the 1991 Drue Heinz Literature Prize. Her work has been anthologized in Best American Short Stories; Prize Stories: The O. Henry Awards, The Pushcart Prize Anthology, and Best American Essays.  She teaches at Boston College.
