Rachel Lyon ’05

Rachel Lyon is the author of the novel SELF-PORTRAIT WITH BOY (Scribner 2018), which Maureen Corrigan of NPR’s Fresh Air called “a striking… smart novel about the narcissistic ambition that’s needed to succeed, especially in the art world, especially in New York.” Rachel’s shorter work has appeared in Joyland, Iowa Review, Electric Literature’s Recommended Reading, McSweeney’s, Bustle, the Brooklyn Rail, and elsewhere. A cofounder of the reading series Ditmas Lit, in her native Brooklyn NY, she teaches for Sackett Street Writers Workshop, Catapult, and the Fine Arts Work Center.
