About the Author

AMY FUSSELMAN is the author of The Pharmacist''s Mate and 8. As "Dr." Fusselman, she writes the "Family Practice" parenting column for McSweeney's Internet Tendency. Her work has also appeared in the New York Times Magazine, Ms., Hairpin, and ARTnews.


Advance Praise for Savage Park: "Amy Fusselman writes with a unique depth of feeling, and Savage Park is a fascinating and daresay essential meditation on childhood, parenthood, and the importance of wild spaces for those wild creatures known as kids." -- Dave Eggers "In this unusually refreshing meditation (which reads like a novel), we are given a tour of the space around and within us. With poetic efficiency Amy Fusselman reveals what makes us savage or not; why secret, wild spaces are essential; and, why playing should be taken seriously."
--Philippe Petit, High Wire Artist "I yield to no one in my admiration for Amy Fusselman's work. Her new book, Savage Park, further explores with astonishing power, eloquence, precision, and acid humor her obsessive, necessary theme: the gossamer-thin separation between life and death."--David Shields, author of Reality Hunger "Savage Park is a deeply felt and brilliant evocation of one of motherhood's most pressing concerns: safety. In asking whether we can live fully--or parent successfully--when we're governed by an unacknowledged fear of death, Fusselman jumps high above the tedious Mommy Wars, elevating crucial questions of parenting to a profound philosophical level. Here's hoping more writer-mothers follow her lead."--Darcey Steinke, author of Sister Golden Hair "Amy Fusselman helps us see, and feel, what matters most about being alive. This is a daring and artful--and exhilarating--book. The ideas are bracing; the stories are irresistible; the prose sets a new standard for non-fiction literature."
--Joshua Wolf Shenk, author of Powers of Two "Fusselman's mind is a playground in and of itself. [Her] prose has a spare, clean elegance that can carry a knife-like precision."--San Francisco Chronicle "This brief, passionate book....never fails to engage."--Kate Tuttle, The Boston Globe
