Danielle Dutton’s fiction has appeared in magazines such as Harper's, BOMB, Fence, and Noon. In March 2016, Catapult will publish her novel Margaret the First. She is also the author of a collection of hybrid prose pieces, Attempts at a Life, which Daniel Handler in Entertainment Weekly called “indescribably beautiful,” and the novel SPRAWL, a finalist for the Believer Book Award. In 2010, Dutton founded the small press Dorothy, a publishing project, named for her great aunt Dorothy Traver, a librarian who drove a bookmobile through the back hills of southern California. The press itself has been praised in the New York Times and Chicago Tribune, and Dutton has been interviewed in the Paris Review, Kirkus, and elsewhere for her work promoting innovative women writers.
