Susan Pashman’s "Upper West Side Story" to be published in May by
Susan Pashman’s second novel, Upper West Side Story, will be published in May by Harvard Square Editions both as a paperback and eBook.
Susan began the novel almost fourteen years ago at VCCA; she continued to work on it during a subsequent residency.
Susan writes, “Of course, I haven't been at work on this book for a full fourteen years. During this time period, I designed and built a house, landscaped my property, spent five years at Harvard getting certified as a landscape historian and designer, spent another year earning an M.A. in Landscape History, and then another year completing a doctoral dissertation in Landscape Aesthetics at Stony Brook University, SUNY and have published many new stories and essays. But I am most rewarded by this new publication, so long in the making. Thank you to VCCA for starting me off with the gift of time and the perfect place.”
