Boris Fishman


Boris's novels, both New York Times Notable Books of the Year, and memoir are out in paperback from HarperCollins. He is at work on a new novel about a family in flight from civil war. From 2015-22, he taught creative writing at Princeton and the University of Montana. In 2023, he will launch a series of private writing workshops called Tears & Glory.


Savage Feast was one of Amazon's Best Books of the Month. The New York Times called it "a tightly-written page turner," and The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Vanity Fair, and Publishers Weekly agreed: “Fishman’s immigrant saga masterfully evokes a family that survives, united by food." Here's Boris on NPR's Morning Edition and in Saveur. Details here.
