(Editor)
Novelist Rick Moody was born in Fairfield, Connecticut on October 18, 1962. He is an undergraduate of Brown University and has a Master of Fine Arts Degree from Columbia University. Moody's works often demonstrate the concept that money makes no difference in the problems people face. His first novel, Garden State, won Pushcart's Tenth Annual Editor's Book Award. The Ice Storm (1994) was adapted into the 1997 film starring Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver. In 1999, The New Yorker chose him as one of America's most talented young writers, listing him on their "20 Writers for the 21st Century" list. He has also won the Addison Metcalf Award and has received a Guggenheim Fellowship.

Moody's memoir The Black Veil (2002) won the PEN/Martha Albrand Award for the Art of the Memoir. His other works include The Diviners and The Four Fingers of Death. In 2012 he won Fernanda Pivano Award in Italy.

Moody has taught at Yale University, Princeton University, the State University of New York at Purchase and Bennington College, and New York University.
