Maile Meloy Career


Meloy received the Aga Khan Prize for Fiction for her book "Aqua Boulevard" in 2001; the PEN/Malamud Award for her first collection of short stories, Half in Love, in 2003; and a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2004. Granta included her on its list of the 21 "Best Young American Novelists" in 2007.

Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, and she is a regular contributor to The New York Times.

"What I wound up with was a book set in different decades, some in Montana," Meloy writes on the Ploughshares web site, "and in some other places, in London and Paris and Greece." So there was no temporal or geographical unity in the story, but the characters were all caught between one thing and another, half in love with something or someone, when life deals them something they didn't expect."

Two stories from Meloy's collection Half in Love ("Tome" and "Native Sandstone"), as well as one story from Both Ways Is the Only Way I Want It ("Travis, B.) Certain Women, directed by Kelly Reichardt, was adapted into Kelly Reichardt's film Certain Women. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2016 and was released by IFC Films in October 2016. On This American Life's 2016 Christmas episode, Meloy read aloud a tale from the book.

Meloy appeared on the writing staff of Netflix's The Society, which premiered in 2019.
